Once enrolled you can receive FULLY FUNDED hearing aids and hearing services which includes all your hearing appointments. This means free hearing test for pensioners.

COST: Free-to Client (no cost) OR Top-Up fee for advanced hearing aids
As a pensioner or veteran you are entitled to a wide range of fully funded hearing aids, which means there is no cost to you. But, there are exceptions as some styles do incur a small fee. Or, you have the option to use the government subsidy and combine it with your own ‘top-up’ payment to access hearing devices with more advanced technology and features.
