The bill requires the director of the division of professions and occupations in the department of regulatory agencies to adopt rules:
- Requiring hearing aid providers and audiologists to disclose hearing aid pricing, including the separate prices of any parts, attachments, or accessories to hearing aids and any related services. The rules must require that hearing aid users be permitted to purchase the different components and services involved in hearing aids separately.
- Requiring hearing aid providers and audiologists to explain to prospective and current hearing aid users the different communication options available via technological advances for different environments used by the hearing aid user.
The bill makes the violation of these rules a deceptive trade practice under the "Colorado Consumer Protection Act".
