In Australia, there are a variety of ways you can get the hearing aids and other hearing loss solutions you need.
However, it’s important to know what Medicare or private health insurance covers, and what they don’t cover.
Under the Medicare system, you generally won’t be covered for a routine hearing test or any type of hearing aids. However, AudioClinic is offering no cost* hearing tests.
For those looking to have hearing health checks and to find out more about private health fund rebates which will cover some of the costs of hearing aids under ancillary (extras) benefits, click here.
Depending on your insurance provider and the type of health insurance policy you have, you could be able to claim up to $1,200 towards the cost of your hearing aids.
It’s also important to note that if you are experiencing the signs of hearing loss or you are concerned about your hearing health, you can visit your local AudioClinic for a no cost* hearing test and find out how well you hear. Contact us on 1800 280 981 and book an appointment.
There are many different health insurance providers available in Australia and they can provide varying levels of cover. Contact your provider directly if you are unsure about the benefits.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss these options as well as other hearing solutions that may be available to you.
*no cost hearing tests are only available to persons aged 26 years or older.
