36. The Board shall assume the cost of purchase or replacement of a telephone amplifier for a person with a hearing deficiency whose hearing loss is measured at not less than 55 dB, or at not less than 35 dB where he has a marked difficulty with auditory discrimination over the telephone.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board shall assume the cost of the “no-hands” model only where the person with a hearing deficiency is unable to use the “portable” model because he has difficulty operating his hearing aid.
