Hearing aids are a significant investment. But in many cases, there may be financial assistance available. If your hearing loss is the result of workplace noise exposure or an accident, you may be eligible for fully funded hearing aids from ACC. Funding is dependent on a number of factors including your health, any genetic conditions and your age. ACC will look at whether your hearing loss was a result of an injury, an accident of a combination of both.
Generally, ACC will provide funding support for injury-related hearing loss. If your hearing loss is health-related, you may be eligible for funding or subsidy assistance from the Ministry of Health. For more information on financial assistance for hearing aids, see Funding For Hearing Aids.
