30:4J-12.2 NJ FamilyCare Program to provide coverage for hearing aids for certain persons aged 15 or younger.

11.The Commissioner of Human Services shall ensure that every contract for health care services under the NJ FamilyCare Program established pursuant to sections 3 through 5 of P.L.2005, c.156 (C.30:4J-10 through C.30:4J-12), entered into on or after the effective date of this act, provides benefits for medically necessary expenses incurred in the purchase of a hearing aid for a covered person 15 years of age or younger, as provided in this section.

The benefits shall include the purchase of a hearing aid for each ear, when medically necessary and as prescribed or recommended by a licensed physician or audiologist. The commissioner may limit the benefit provided in this section to $1,000 per hearing aid for each hearing-impaired ear every 24 months in any of the NJ FamilyCare Program plans, and may provide, when applicable, that a covered person may choose a hearing aid that is priced higher than the benefit payable under this section and may pay the difference between the price of the hearing aid and the benefit payable under this section, without financial or contractual penalty to the provider of the hearing aid.
