The funding is provided by the Ministry of Health.
Anyone in New Zealand who is aged 16 and over and is a NZ Citizen or Permanent Resident is eligible for the Ministry of Health funding towards hearing aids.
The funding available is $1,022.22 for a pair of hearing aids.
If you only need a single hearing aid, you will receive $511.11.
With the government funding, hearing aids at Bay Audiology start from $450. If you wish to get more advanced technology than what is available for $450, there will be an additional cost.
The first step is to book a hearing check at your local Bay Audiology clinic. The team will assess your hearing and determine if you have a hearing loss. If you have a hearing loss, you will then attend a diagnostic hearing consultation where your audiologist will discuss hearing solutions for you and will apply for funding on your behalf.
