An additional perk to being a teacher is that the school district offers health care coverage, in addition to the salary. However, not all healthcare coverage is the same as demonstrated through the lack of a local school district’s coverage of hearing aids. This local school districts does not cover the full cost of aids, despite the effect on education if a child is unable to have full access forcing an employee to pay this expense out of pocket. This project is a case study about the effects of healthcare coverage for employees that have a child with hearing loss; and after interviewing an employees of a local school district, and will share the personal perspective with reasons for how a school district can improve their healthcare coverage practices.
