  • 1 h
  • Hearing by BEJA

Service Description

Price: $0 (fully subsidised) for a 60-minute, full assessment Hearing loss can be a slow, progressive change that often goes unnoticed by the sufferer for many years (sometimes decades). The first signs of a change in our hearing might be comments from those closest to us, difficulty following conversation in noise, despite no trouble 1-to-1 or while watching the news on TV, or frustration with children's voices, accents or when people speak while not facing. Hearing by BEJA is an authorised provider of the Government's Hearing Services Program (HSP), which enables us to offer fully subsidised services to eligible individuals. Under the Hearing Services Program, those who qualify will also gain access to subsidies towards hearing aids and assistive listening devices, where these are indicated. To be eligible for the program, you need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident aged 21 or older, and have/be: - Pensioner Concession Card (PCC – Blue Card) - Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card - Department of Veterans’ Affairs White Card (hearing-specific) - Spouse of one of the above cardholders - Member of the Australian Defence Force - Referred by the Disability Employment Services (Disability Management Services) program A Seniors Health Card does not qualify for HSP services; however, we will waive the Private Hearing Test fee if you proceed with hearing devices on the day (where required). For your hearing assessment, we will take a comprehensive history relevant to your hearing situation, including your medical history and what you feel may be important to consider. We will check your ears for wax* and any other issues that may be present, such as infection, before conducting a thorough test battery (hearing thresholds, speech recognition and middle ear function) to evaluate the nature and degree of hearing loss, if any, you may have. Once your results are in, we'll discuss with you any referrals or recommendations that we may have, based on these findings. This may include referral to a Doctor or Specialist, hearing aid recommendations, custom hearing protection, assistive listening devices, communication strategies, or follow-up testing in 12 months. For more information, visit * Wax removal/microsuction is complimentary for those eligible for the Hearing Services Program, when conducted during a subsidised hearing assessment or hearing aid fitting.
