Self-Funded Retirees

If you are a self-funded retiree, we believe you should also get a discount on hearing services. If you hold a valid Seniors Card and present this at your appointment with Heart for Hearing, you will receive a discount on your hearing assessment and any hearing devices that you may need or want.

We’d love to hear from you!

Pensioners and Veterans

The amount of coverage that you receive from your health insurance will depend on who you are with. We can help you speak to your health insurance provider to understand if your plan includes the provision for both ‘Audiology Services’ and/or ‘Hearing Aids’ and see how much you can get back. Generally health insurance providers can provide coverage varying from $400 to approximately $1600 for hearing aids. These rebates can be different if you choose one or two hearing aids, have maximum limits and also differ on how often you can claim the amount (yearly or once every 3-4 years).
