For NDIS participants who already have an NDIS plan and who are not eligible for the Hearing Services Program (HSP) after 1 July 2020
Your hearing services will be funded through both the Hearing Services Program (HSP) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) from 1 July 2020. If you have a current HSP voucher, it will remain valid until your next NDIS Plan review at which time you can discuss your support options with your Planner. If you are Cochlear Implant user - once your voucher has expired, you will need to access all maintenance and support services for your cochlear implant from your implant clinic.
Since Hearing Australia is both a HSP provider and a registered NDIS provider,
if you are a hearing aid user in one or both ears you have the option to continue to receive the same level of care and support from us, funded through the HSP or your NDIS plan.
You may be able to receive funding for additional disability related supports that are not covered under the HSP such as alerting devices. NDIS planners and Local Area Coordinators work with NDIS participants to develop individual plans that provide funding for the right supports and services for each participant. Further information is available on the NDIS website.
