Grace's Law

A New Jersey bill has passed the state Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee that would require health insurance companies to provide $1000 in coverage for hearing aids for children under age of 16 every two years. The legislation is called Grace’s Law and is named for Grace Gleba, an 8-year-old girl has a severe hearing impairment. Her mother, Jeanine Gleba started lobbying lawmakers to pass the bill nine years ago.
