Referring your patient
to Hearing Innovations

Our standard consultation involves a full audiological assessment. Further management including hearing device fitting and cochlear implant assessment is conducted upon request.

We are accredited to provide Medicare subsidised hearing assessments for patients with a referral from a GP or a specialist.

The Hearing Innovations Referral Form is available here.

A Medicare rebate is also available for clients who have a Chronic Disease Management Plan from their GP which allows up to 5 audiological visits per year.

Some private health funds provide a rebate for audiology consultations. Hearing Innovations has a contract with the Office of Hearing Services to provide free or subsidised hearing devices for eligible pensioners and veterans.
