Do you need a new ballast everytime you change the floresent bulb?

our electrician when asked to change a floresent bulb stated that he needed to get a new ballast.

This is probably a really late answer, but if your electrician says you need a new ballast with each bulb change, get a new electrician. And give the old one a bad Angie's List review, muahaha. Ballasts should last at least three or four bulb changes (probably more).
