Funding for hearing products & services

Brindabella Hearing & Speech Centre is accredited to provide pensioners, Australian Defence Force members, war veterans and some others with free hearing services and hearing aids under the Australian Government Hearing Services Program administered by the Office of Hearing Services. If you are eligible for this program but require something more sophisticated than the free hearing aids on offer, you have the option of 'topping up' with your own money to access the full range of modern solutions.

As of February 2014, the Government has provided us with an online facility that lets us apply for services on your behalf. Give us a ring on 02 6281 2311 and we will be happy to do the work for you!

Similarly, if you wish to relocate from another hearing provider for any reason, ring us on 02 6281 2311 and we will organise the Government paperwork for you, and handle the file request from your old provider.
