Canadian Audiologists Petition to Include Hearing Tests in Private Insurance Coverage
Eye exams completed by optometrists are commonly covered by health insurance plans. An eye exam must be completed in order to obtain a prescription for glasses.
Audiometric evaluations (hearing tests) completed by audiologists are not commonly covered by health insurance plans. An audiometric evaluation must be completed in order to obtain a prescription for hearing aids.
We are asking ALL health insurance benefit plans to cover hearing tests completed by audiologists, in the same manner that they cover eye exams completed by optometrists.
