WorkCover Support

It’s common for people in noisy work environments to experience hearing loss. Many people claim all or part of their hearing aids through the WorkCover scheme and some are entitled to a monetary benefit.

At Smart Hearing Solutions we have a streamlined process to assist you with WorkCover.

Smart Hearing Solutions is accredited to provide services in South Australia and Victoria.

Private Health Rebates

Our clinicians are accredited with all private health fund providers. If you are fitted with a hearing device, you may be eligible for a rebate. The average rebate currently sits between $500 – $1200 for a pair depending on the level of extras cover and fund.

Please note the full invoice is paid to Smart Hearing Solutions on the day you are fitted with the hearing devices. The invoice is then taken to your private health fund for a rebate, if applicable.

Gap Payments

A full hearing assessment is $89.00 out of pocket. Medicare and private health do not cover the hearing assessment cost.

We have a free hearing check available at our clinics. No appointment is necessary.
