A grant towards the cost of your hearing aid is available under the Treatment Benefit Scheme. The maximum grant is €500 per hearing aid (€1000 for a pair). This means all our hearing aids €1,000 and under are fully covered by your PRSI contributions and essentially completely free if you qualify for the grant! If the cost of your hearing aids is over €1000, you only need to pay the balance.
There are now more people than ever eligible for a hearing aid grant. Those who are employed, self-employed, or retired are all eligible providing they or their dependent spouse or partner have the required amount of PRSI contributions. Medical Card holders are also likely to have the required PRSI contributions, which means you too could be entitled to a free pair of hearing aids.
A hearing aid repair grant up to a maximum of €100 is available and of course we also offer Free hearing tests.
