If you find yourself in need of hearing aids, it can be an overwhelming adjustment. Inevitably, the conversation turns quickly to a discussion about the cost of hearing aids, and the options available.
There are various types and manufacturers of hearing aids that all differ in functionality, quality and features. Generally, hearing aids can cost between $1,000 – $4,000 per ear. Through government assistance and insurance options, many patients can offset this expense.
Review the various types of hearing aids here.
Every resident of Ontario has access to government assistance through the “Assistive Devices Program (ADP)”. This fund helps “people with long-term physical disabilities pay for customized equipment, like wheelchairs and hearing aids.” The program provides up to $500 per ear, every five years (if required).
In addition to this, many private health insurance companies offer solutions for specialized medical equipment and devices, like hearing aids.
