Case Date:
Case Issue:

The Petitioner/Employer, SWVA, Inc., appeals from an Order of the Workers’ Compensation Board of Review dated April 7, 2006, which reversed and vacated a January 20, 2005, Order from the Workers’ Compensation Office of Judges. The Board of Review granted authorization for digital hearing aids for the Claimant. On appeal, the Employer argues that the Board was plainly wrong for authorizing the digital hearing aids because the evidence failed to establish that digital hearing aids were reasonably required as treatment in this claim.
