Hearing Aid Subsidies for Veterans and Pensioners

Everybody deserves to receive the treatment they need. Hearing loss can impact all areas of your life, and failing to receive treatment will just worsen your condition. Don’t put off treatment out of fear of the costs.

As a pensioner or veteran, you may be eligible for subsidised care and benefits for hearing services. Under the Australian Government’s Hearing Services Program (HSP), Melbourne Audiology Centre can provide hearing care and hearing aids for eligible participants.

Eligibility for fully subsidised hearing tests and fully or partially subsidised hearing aids under the HSP allows our team to provide essential care for those who need it most. All our audiologists are experts in hearing and hearing aids, meaning we can recommend the best hearing aids for your unique needs.

It Starts With A Hearing Test

Here at Melbourne Audiology Centre (MAC), we want to see you be able to take part in conversations and hear all the sounds important to you so you can work, socialise, and enjoy life to the fullest. Your journey to receiving hearing aids and support all begins with a comprehensive hearing test at one of our clinics. This will be conducted by one of our experienced MAC audiologists. During your 1-hour appointment, your audiologist will:

  • Ask you about your listening and communication needs.
  • Test your hearing levels.
  • Clearly explain your hearing test results and what they mean for your diagnosis.
  • Inform you about your eligibility for subsidised hearing aids if you have hearing loss.

Hearing Aids Through HSP

If eligible, you will likely be able to receive fully subsidised hearing aids through the HSP. This means you won’t need to pay a cent! These hearing aids will be high-quality and fully able to support your hearing needs, though may not include some of the non-essential features that partially subsidised hearing aids might have.

Partially Subsidised
Some hearing aids will be partially covered by the HSP, while the rest of the cost will need to be self-funded. Typically, these hearing aids will include non-essential features to enhance your experience, such as wireless connection or automatic functions.
