Hearing services for young adults

From 1 January 2012, young adults aged between 21 and 26 can continue to receive access to hearing services through Australian Hearing

The changes are a result of an Australian Government policy change, which allows Australian Hearing to provide hearing services for young adults up to their 26th birthday. Previously eligibility was lost when turning 21. 
 
Australian Hearing is funded by the Australian Government to look after the hearing needs of children and young adults who have a permanent or long-term hearing loss.
 
This means from 1 January 2012, those aged under 26 will once again have access to our services including:
  • Regular monitoring of your hearing and hearing needs
  • Hearing aid fitting and maintenance
  • Assistance with maintenance of cochlear implant speech processors
  • Cochlear implant speech processor upgrades
  • Replacement of lost or damaged cochlear implant processors
