Fees And Accessing Our Services

Centrelink Pensions and Veterans


Pensioner Concession Card holders, Sickness Allowance Card holders (formerly disability pension) and most Veterans (all Gold Cards and White Cards where hearing is a specified disability) can access our services via the Hearing Services Program. The Federally funded program covers the cost of comprehensive hearing assessment, and where necessary, allows participants to select hearing aids or other assistive listening devices from a range of fully or partly subsidized aids. The program also extends subsidized aftercare services to eligible cardholders, thereby substantially minimizing the cost of maintaining hearing appliances. Eligible cardholders can apply online at www.hearingservices.gov.au or are welcome to contact our office for assistance in accessing Government funded services.

Price Points


There are generally four hearing aid price points, ranging from $1900 to $5000 per appliance (or $3800 to $10,000 for a pair). The distribution of prices is similar across all brands and styles. Exact cost depends on the level of technology, rather than the size of the instrument. More expensive hearing aids offer better noise suppression to improve listening comfort across a broader range of environments. Higher priced instruments also offer more precise tuning for more complex hearing loss. In reality, most individuals will find a device to suit their needs in lower to mid-priced offerings.

Children


Children aged 3-18 years attending without a referral attract a fee ranging from $100 to $200 depending on what is required on the day.  We do not currently assess children under 3 years of age.

Industrial

Industry and pre-employment hearing tests with calculation of percentage loss of hearing can be arranged. We are able to extend a discount when testing twenty or more workers.

Ear Wax Removal

Ear wax removal can generally be achieved in one or two visits. Fees are charged in accordance with complexity of removal and time taken to achieve a satisfactory outcome. Costs range from $100 to $235.

Batteries And Accessories

As a convenience to our patients, batteries & hearing aid maintenance accessories are priced below the industry norm. Please contact us for current battery pricing.
