Better hearing might be more accessible than ever for millions of Americans come next year. According to CBS News, millions of Americans should already be able to go to their local drug store to pick up over-the-counter hearing aids.

Unfortunately that’s not possible today because the Food and Drug Administration missed the August 2020 proposal deadline. In July, President Joe Biden signed an executive order giving the FDA another 120 days to finish drafting their proposal with the necessary guidelines.
