FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A new state program is collecting used hearing aids to refurbish and distribute to Kentuckians who have hearing impairments and need assistance.

The Statewide Hearing Aid Assistance and Reuse Program is accepting hearing aids of any age or condition.

The Kentucky Assistive Technology Service Network says donated hearing aids will either be refurbished to like-new condition with a one-year warranty, or used for parts. Refurbished hearing aids will be provided to people who qualify through a statewide network of hearing health professionals.

Officials say recipients will be responsible for covering the cost of the audiologist fees such as exams, fittings and follow-up visits.

Donors can call the KATS Network at (800) 327-5287 to request a self-addressed stamped envelope or drop hearing aids off at a participating collection center.
