How Much Do Hearing Aids Really Cost?
These advancements in hearing aid technology, have taken decades of research and development to create, test and fit inside tiny hearing aids, which continue to get even smaller. Hearing aids can typically range from approximately $1,000 to $6,000 per hearing aid, and most people usually require two. Hearing aid prices can at times be ‘bundled’ to not only account for the cost of the hearing aids themselves, but also the audiological services and support appointments your patients require. When purchasing hearing aids, it is also important for your patients to investigate if they have private health insurance and determine how much their provider will rebate towards hearing aids.
If your patient is an aged-care pensioner or holds a Department of Veteran Affairs card through the Hearing Services Program (HSP), hearing aids may be fully subsidised at the entry level technology for those with a HSP voucher.
Technology level, size, audiological services, private health insurance and government subsidies are all factors that can influence the cost of your patients hearing aids. It is important for your patients to speak to an independent audiology clinic to support them in making the best decision when it comes to which hearing technology level is appropriate for them when considering hearing aids.
