Funding for hearing aids

Throughout the years I have come across a lot of clients who are not aware of possible funding they could receive for hearing aids. I have met people who purchased their hearing aids and then later found out they could have had some, if not, the full cost of the hearing aids covered.

Below is a list of some of the most common 3rd parties to help fund hearing aids.

Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL): If you live in Alberta and are 65 years or older, you are eligible for funding through AADL.

Workers Compensation Board (WCB): If you have a history of working in a noisy environment you could be eligible for funding through WCB.

Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC): If you currently serve or used to serve in the Canadian Armed Forces, you could be eligible for hearing aid funding.

Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB): If you are an individual with First Nation or Intuit status, you could be eligible for funding.

There are also a number of other ways to access funding to support your investment in hearing aids.

  • You may have funding through a private insurance benefits plan.
  • You may be eligible for funding through other programs such as those outlined in the links below
