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.
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.
Alternatively please phone us on 02 9327 6611 for a Referral Pad.
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.
