Over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aid legislation and sales have grabbed the attention of audiologists, pharmacists, and consumers over the past few years.

This is an opportunity for audiologists to broaden their appeal to individuals who may not wear hearing aids or even have hearing loss. As this article illustrates, there are several possible strategies that can be used by audiologists to create value for this large group of individuals.
