Such receipt shall be in the manner and form as prescribed by the board in its rules and regulations. Such rules and regulations shall prescribe the type and size of print to be used in such receipt and the receipt shall set forth such additional information as the board may prescribe. A copy of such receipt shall be retained in the records of the licensee for a period of seven years following the issuance of such receipt.
(b) Each person supplied with a hearing aid by a hearing-aid dealer licensed pursuant to the provisions of this article shall have the right to return the hearing aid to the dealer within thirty calendar days of receipt and rescind the purchase agreement if the hearing aid does not function properly, cannot be adjusted to satisfactorily correct the deficiency in the person's hearing or the person is otherwise dissatisfied with the hearing aid. If a hearing-aid dealer, pursuant to being notified by a person to whom he has supplied a hearing aid that the hearing aid does not function properly, does not satisfactorily correct the deficiency in the person's hearing or that the person is otherwise dissatisfied with the hearing aid, makes an adjustment to the hearing aid or advises the person to continue use of the hearing aid for the purpose of becoming more accustomed thereto or any other reason, the right of the person to whom the hearing aid was supplied shall be extended for thirty calendar days following the date upon which such adjustment was made or advisement was given.
(c) An exercise of the right to rescind the purchase agreement by a person to whom a hearing aid has been supplied may not preclude the dealer from charging reasonable fees for examination and fitting. The maximum fees which may be charged by a hearing-aid dealer for examination and fitting shall be fixed by the West Virginia board of hearing-aid dealers by rule and regulation lawfully promulgated in accordance with the provisions of chapter twenty-nine-a of this code.
