Frequently Asked Questions

Sound Hearing Clinic is a preferred provider for most medical insurance plans, some of which carry a hearing aid benefit. It is important that you check with your insurance provider for information regarding hearing benefit coverage, which you can typically find by contacting your insurer’s customer service line. Although we can provide some assistance with this process, your individual insurer will have more details.
The cost of hearing aids is usually the result of a few things: the quality of sound that the unit produces, the features included that help the user hear better, the quality of the components of the unit, and the custom fitting and follow-up care by the specialist who fits your hearing aids. Although inexpensive hearing aids do exist, they are typically made with low-quality components, are not correctly fit to treat your specific hearing loss, and do not include any professional care by a highly trained provider who will help you get the most out of your investment.

No, the medical services plan of British Columbia does not cover the cost of hearing aids for adults. Nor does it cover the cost of the assessment required to obtain hearing aids. If you feel the government should be providing some degree of funding for hearing assessments and hearing aids for adults, please tell Premier Clarke and the Minister of Health for British Columbia so by writing:
