SLP/Aud Licensing - MDH

Speech-Language Pathologist and Audiologist Licensing


Effective for hearing instruments dispensed on or after December 7, 2016, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) will not enforce the requirement that persons aged 18 years or older either have a medical examination or waive such evaluation prior to obtaining air-conduction hearing aids.

In making this decision, MDH is following guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The guidance is intended to support consumer access to most hearing aids.

Both the FDA and MDH will continue to enforce the requirement that persons under age 18 be medically evaluated prior to obtaining hearing aids and to require compliance with the FDA warning regarding eight medical conditions.
