Public Comment on Draft Recommendation: Screening for Hearing Loss in Adults Ages 50 Years and Older
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is inviting public comment on its draft recommendation statement on Screening for Hearing Loss in Adults Ages 50 Years and Older. This is an update of the 1996 USPSTF recommendation. The updated draft recommendation applies to adults ages 50 years and older who show no signs or symptoms of hearing loss. It does not apply to people seeking treatment for hearing problems.

The USPSTF is a national, independent panel of medical experts that makes recommendations based on scientific evidence to primary care doctors and other health care providers about which clinical prevention services they should offer their patients.
