Make sure you insure your hearing aids

Accidents can happen, and personal items can get lost, so make sure your hearing aids are covered for any eventuality.

Posted Tuesday June 8, 2021

The first step is to have your insurance company list them on your policy. You probably did this when you purchased them, but if not, now is a good time to organise it.

If for any reason you no longer have the receipt or model details, contact us. Audiology South will be able to provide a certificate of value and an accurate record of the model for insurance purposes.

If something happens

If something does happen to your hearing aids please contact Audiology South in the first instance. We may be able to help with your claim, and supply hearing aids on loan while you are waiting for replacements.

Be assertive

When you put in an insurance claim, you may find that your insurance company will ‘shop around’ to source the replacements, and may recommend purchasing from another company. You are entitled to, but not obliged to accept their recommendation. So if you prefer that Audiology South supplies and fits your replacement hearing aids, you may have to firmly and assertively let your insurance company know this.
