Funding and finance options

Funding and finance options for your hearing aids

Learn more about the funding and finance options we offer for hearing aids, including the Government subsidy, ACC, Veterans Affairs, Q Card and WINZ payments. The friendly team at your local Bay Audiology clinic can help you to apply. 

$1,000 Government subsidy

The Ministry of Health entitles New Zealand citizens and permanent residents aged 16 years and over to a government subsidy of $1022.22 toward a pair of hearing aids, or up to $511.11 towards a single hearing aid, once every six years. If you are eligible, you can get hearing aids from as little as $450 with the Government subsidy.

Other funding options

Our hearing specialists offer expert advice on funding options that may be available to you. We will help you apply for funding and support you every step of the way. There are several other funding options available in New Zealand, including:

ACC Funding

If your type of work has taken a toll on your hearing, you might be eligible for funding from ACC. ACC may contribute towards the cost of your hearing aids, hearing aid maintenance and repairs, and replacement of batteries as you need them. They will also provide support for you to replace your hearing aids once every six years.

We are a Registered ACC Supplier and can help you get the process started.

Veterans’ Affairs

Returned service veterans may be eligible for funding if their hearing loss has been damaged as a result of military service. To start this process, you need to see your GP and contact Veterans’ Affairs. Following this, our audiologists can provide all services to you.

You can get in touch with your local Bay Audiology clinic to learn more about the Veterans’ Affairs process.

60-day money-back guarantee

Experience the latest technology at no obligation with our risk free 60-day money-back guarantee on all hearing aids. If you're not completely satisfied we'll give you a full refund.
