FAQ’s

audiology-faq
What does a hearing assessment involve?
It is a non-painful procedure. An assessment is done of the middle ear space to ascertain whether or not you have healthy functioning middle ears. The assessment further includes headphones placed on your head with a series of sound presented, requiring you to respond to it. It also includes an assessment of our ability to follow and discriminate speech. It is usually 45-90 minutes long.
How much do hearing aids cost?
The cost of hearing aids depends on the level of technology in it. The range of aids fall into three categories: entry-level, middle range and top end devices. Entry level aids provide basic technology and features to suit more simple lifestyle and listening needs. It also suits a limited budget. Top end aids, alternatively, provides highest quality technology and features to suit more complex listening needs and lifestyles. It also suits people with a less restricted budget. The higher the level of technology, the clearer the definition of sound. Audiology@Home offers the complete range of hearing aids above and it could cost between R6000-R60000. The audiologist is trained and experienced in selecting the most suitable device for you- a device that both meet your hearing needs and your budget.
Does medical aid cover hearing tests and hearing aids?
Yes, most medical aids pay out of their “savings” portion/day-to-day cover for audiology consultations and hearing tests, given that you have funds available at the time of the assessment. Hearing aids are usually covered under a separate fund/portion for "devices/prosthetics”. Most medical aids will pay for two hearing aids, once every 2-3 years.
Do I need any referral letters to make an appointment?
You do not need any referral letters. You do however have to see a doctor if you have discharging ears. Discharging ears need to be treated and dried by a medical professional before your hearing test. It is also a good idea to have wax removed from your ears before your hearing test.
