Coverage

We provide hearing aids that are fit in compliance with best practice standards. We provide NIHB, WCB and DVA and AADL "third party" services. 

There are 4 major “third party” or governmental coverages in Alberta. AADL (Alberta Aids To Daily Living) covers 18 and under and 65 and over with general subsidies and/or a cost-share exemption. DVA (or VAC) may cover Veterans for tinnitus and/or hearing loss, WCB may cover those workers who acquired noise induced hearing loss at work, and NIHB covers First Nations status card holders for devices. We will work through your coverage with you and guide you through the application process.

AADL and AISH

If you are under 18 or over 65 and are a resident of Alberta for more than 3 months you may have AADL coverage and this will affect your pricing as well. In some cases, you may have them fully paid for by AADL. Complete this form to find out your coverage and let us know prior to ordering hearing aids for you. 


DVA and WCB and NIHB (DIA)

If you have an approved DVA or WCB claim (any province) you will have hearing aid coverage for life including new ones approximately every 4-5 years, batteries, out of warranty services and more.
