Financial Assistance

Having your hearing checked is quick, comfortable and completely painless.

At ​Total Hearing Care ​we aim to minimise the ‘out of pocket’ costs for our clients as much as possible, ​options that can supplement the costs of hearing aids​ and services are listed below…

Total Hearing Care is an accredited ​ACC & MOH​ provider.

Hearing aid costs have also been affected by developments in technology over the last decade. Some people may be eligible for a hearing aid subsidy or third-party funding.

In general hearing aids purchased in the private sector can be classified as follows (costs are approximate only). Final prices will vary between clinics and obtaining a quote from at least one other clinic is advisable.

Ministry of Health

If you have a hearing loss, hearing aids may be part of the solution to improve your hearing. You may be able to get help from the Ministry of Health​​ to pay for the cost of hearing aids.

ACC Scheme

Individuals may be eligible for funding towards hearing aids through the ACC scheme if their hearing loss is the result of prolonged occupational noise exposure or a sudden trauma that has damaged hearing. ​Visit the ACC Website​ for additional information on the ACC claims process.

Ministry of Social Development (Work and Income)​

Anyone who receives a benefit from Work and Income NZ can apply for a loan of up to $1000 to help with the purchase of hearing aids. The loan is deducted gradually from future benefit payments.

What’s included within our hearing aid prices:

  • Life of hearing aid follow-up & adjustment appointments
  • 3 year warranty
  • 60 Day return guarantee (less consulting fee)
  • Priority audiological support
