  1. I need to contact the office that handles hearing aids insurance. I misplaced the form I need to complete submission of all required documents. I have paid for the hearing aids as instructed.

    I think the name of the company that handles that is: Health Care Solutions, but can’t find it anywhere I’m not even sure that this is the correct location for my inquiry.
