Do you possess any of the following cards below? If you do, then you may be eligible for the Hearing Service Program.
The Hearing Service Program provides many fully subsidised Audiology Services*
You will have access to a wide range of devices.
You will have a sound understanding of your hearing loss (i.e., your type and degree of hearing loss). Adaptive Hearing will recommend you the most appropriate hearing solution for your personal circumstances.
The maintenance program supplies you with the repair services and batteries needed to operate your hearing aid annually. Many hearing service providers charge an annual fee for this service. Adaptive Hearing will usually waive this this fee.
Each Annual review will allow any monitoring of any hearing changes and allow us to troubleshoot any problems you may encounter.
Applying for a hearing service voucher can be tricky as you’ll need the assistance of a approved hearing service provider. Fortunately, we’ll do the hard work for you. If you think you meet the eligibility criteria, simply contact us on (02) 9729 2635 to arrange an appointment. At the appointment ensure you bring the appropriate card that you are applying with (e.g., pensioner concession card) and we’ll ensure you are eligible for the fully subsidised audiology services under the HSP.
If you are not eligible for the Australian Government HSP, there are still options to help you reduce the cost to access these hearing services. Perhaps you have private health insurance which may provide extras cover for hearing services.
