Grace's Law

A bill making its way through the New Jersey legislature would require health insurance companies to provide $1000 in coverage for hearing aids every two years for children under age of 16. Grace’s Law is named for Grace Gleba. The 8-year-old girl has a severe hearing impairment. Her mother, Jeanine Gleba started lobbying lawmakers to pass the bill nine years ago. It’s now in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
