Private Health Insurance Rebates

 

Health Fund rebate for Hearing Aids and Audiology Services

Navigating the financial aspects of audiology care and acquiring hearing aids can be challenging, but private health insurance can provide substantial relief. Private Health Funds often extend rebates for audiology services or hearing aids, making audiology care more accessible.

As a Medicare recognized provider, we have partnered with various insurance funders to simplify your healthcare journey. These partnerships help in easing the process of claiming insurance rebates for expenses related to hearing assessments, as well as the purchase and maintenance of hearing aids, providing significant financial support for individuals experiencing hearing loss. We also offer the convenience of HICAPS to our patients, allowing for hassle-free claims processing at our clinic post your session.

Below, we present a detailed list of private health funds and the contributions they provide towards audiology services and hearing aids, aimed at helping you make informed decisions regarding your hearing healthcare journey.
