Why do you require a signed FDA/medical waiver and/or a HIPPA release form?
Our goal is to keep you safe. It is true that the FDA removed the requirement of a signed medical waiver, but when you consider the fact that we are engaged in remote programming of your hearing aids, we at Top Notch Hearing believe it is still in your best interest to read and understand any potential causes for concern as pertaining to your hearing.
In the unlikely event that we need to discuss any details of your hearing loss with the manufacture, medical professional or family member, we are required by Federal law to have a signed HIPAA release form on file.
