Requires audiological services providers to provide to enrollees, upon request, a detailed and itemized statement with information outlining the costs of audiological devices, the plan payment amounts, and the amount of out-of-pocket costs to be paid by the enrollee for the various device options available to treat the enrollee's condition.
