Private Hearing Care

Our audiologists are here to help if you’re looking for advice on any hearing-related issue. We offer private care services to clients who aren’t covered by the Hearing Services Program (HSP) and those who can not receive hearing aids via WorkCover applications.

Options for people who don't qualify for Hearing Aid subsidies

Even if your hearing care isn’t funded by a government program, you still have several options to help you access a hearing loss specialist.

  • Private healthcare

  • Interest-free payment plans

Private Healthcare

Many private health funds offer audiology as part of their extras coverage. If that includes your policy, you may be able to fund hearing checks and cover some of the cost of any hearing aids you need. Note that these benefits often have limits. A typical policy may cover between $400 and $1,600 of the cost of hearing aids. If this sum isn’t enough to cover the full cost, you must pay the difference.

Speak to your provider if you’re unsure about the coverage available. You may also be able to ask your provider if hearing aids are covered by insurance and potentially adjust your policy so you gain access to audiology as an extra.

Are Hearing Aids Covered by Private Health Insurance?

The answer depends on the type of coverage you have. The cost of hearing aids isn’t usually covered by a standard policy. However, some policies have rebates that cover some or all of the cost of audiology treatment.

If you’re asking yourself why aren’t hearing aids covered by insurance, that may be a sign that you need to adjust your policy. Look for a policy that offers audiology as a rebate, ideally with a commitment from your insurer to pay $1,000 or more towards your hearing aids.

Whatever your situation may be, Freedom Hearing wants to help by making access to hearing aids as affordable as can be. Book your free hearing check today so you can speak to one of our audiologists about your options.
