When it comes to the price of hearing aids, it’s what’s inside that counts. The technology itself is what determines the price point, not necessarily the style or size as many people think.
Generally hearing aids are priced according to categories of technology, and there are essentially 6 levels of technology across all hearing aid manufacturers. Prices per hearing aid price varying from $1000-$5000 depending on level of technology. At Victorian Hearing the cost of the daily worn hearing aids include a 60day return/exchange policy; 3-5 year warranty; 12 months manufacturer insurance policy; 3 months supply of batteries and 3 months worth of appointments.
If you are a pensioner or Veteran, your OHS voucher entitles you to fully subsidised hearing aids at the entry level technology, or you can use the subsidy towards higher levels of technology and pay the “top up” gap.
