Health Cover Rebates

Hearing Aid Rebates & Insurance

As independent Perth owned and operated hearing clinics we are registered with almost all Australian health insurance companies. So we will provide you with a receipt that contains the necessary codes to also claim any refunds on your hearing aid purchase you may be entitled to. Some companies such as Bupa Health Insurance require that we send your hearing test results together with details of your hearing aid purchase and the claiming codes and we happily facilitate this.

Private Health Insurance funds we are registered with include:

HBP, Bupa, Medibank Private, RAC, Australian Unity, Teachers Health Fund, Police and Nurses, NIB, Defence Health, AHM and more.

You may be eligible for a rebate for your hearing aids, Audiology consultations, batteries and accessories from:

– WorkCover
– Tax offset
– Commonwealth Hearing Services Program – Pensioners & Veterans
– Entitlements & Rebates

The private health benefits below should be used as a guide only. Funds may impose additional restrictions and limitations. We strongly recommend that you first confirm your individual benefit with your fund.
