Austin, TX – Thursday, June 15, 2017 -- Today Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 490 by State Representative Rodney Anderson into law. House Bill 490 provides insurance coverage for medically necessary hearing aids and cochlear implants for children age 18 and younger.

"The signing of House Bill 490 into law by Governor Abbott is a huge win for those in the hearing disability community," said Representative Anderson.

HB 490 will allow children with hearing disabilities to develop at the same pace as their peers and will give them the opportunity to attend traditional classrooms instead of special education classrooms.

"I am proud of and grateful for all of the parents, advocates, and staff who worked to get this bill passed," continued Anderson.
