“Less than 8 percent of the people we see are covered by a third-party payer,” said Dr. Bill Dickinson, an assistant professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the hearing-aid product line manager at Vanderbilt’s Bill Wilkerson Center.

Dickinson has been working with several local groups to make the process of getting help easier for low-income people with hearing loss. He is one of the key players in HEAR Nashville, a consortium that includes the Bill Wilkerson Center, the Sertoma Club, the Nashville chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America, the audiology program at Tennessee State University and Bridges to Hearing, a local advocacy group.
