NDIS and hearing aids

Can I get hearing aids and hearing services under NDIS?

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) provides a suite of hearing services and supports to eligible clients that aim to reduce the incidence and consequences of hearing loss. The NDIS provides Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

 

NDIS participants with a permanent hearing impairment may receive funding for assistive technology (AT) in their NDIS plan in addition to receiving hearing devices under the Commonwealth Government's Hearing Services Program (HSP). Hearing devices provided under the HSP are fully subsidised, meaning there is no cost.  As an NDIS participant also accessing support through the HSP, you have the option of entering into a maintenance agreement with us which covers the maintenance of your hearing device and the cost of batteries. The annual fee for the maintenance agreement would be funded in your NDIS plan. All requests for AT supports are considered on an individual basis and may be funded under the NDIS where the support is considered "reasonable and necessary" for the participant. Examples of AT supports include specialised alerting systems (vibrating/ flash smoke alarm), wireless streaming devices (for the TV, phone or remote microphone), remote controls, Cochlear Implant speech processor accessories (including aqua accessories) and speech processor upgrades.

Melbourne Audiology Centre can provide free hearing tests and subsidised hearing aids to eligible NDIS clients through the HSP.  If you already have an HSP voucher issued to you please contact us to arrange your appointment.  Melbourne Audiology Centre is also registered with the NDIS to provide supports under registration groups 'Hearing Equipment' and 'Therapuetic Supports'.

If you need a hearing assessment to support your application to the NDIS, our audiologists can provide this diagnostic assessment.  For this 1 hour diagnostic assessment you may be able to receive a Medicare benefit or you may be eligible for services under the Government's Hearing Services Program (HSP). The initial diagnostic audiological assessment is NOT funded by the NDIS.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hearing services under the NDIS.
