1. What is audiological care?

Audiological care consists of:

  • testing the hearing function;
  • advice on the hearing aid to be purchased;
  • information on the use of the aid;
  • the psychosocial care required as a result of problems with the impaired hearing function;
  • assistance in establishing a diagnosis in the event of speech and language disorders in children.

2. Referral required for audiological care

For audiological care, you will require a referral from a general practitioner, a medical specialist, a youth doctor, a doctor for the mentally disabled or a specialist in geriatric medicine. The referral will remain valid for
a period of twelve months, commencing on the day the referral was issued.

4. Maximum rates non-contracted provider

If you are planning on seeing a care provider with whom we have not concluded an agreement for audiological care, the rates of the rate list for non-contracted care apply. If the rates of the non-contracted care provider are higher than our maximum rates, the difference will be for your expense. This applies to reimbursement under the public healthcare insurance and the supplementary insurances.

5. No statutory personal contribution

You will not be subject to a statutory personal contribution for audiological care.

6. Policy excess

Are you 18 or older? The costs incurred for audiological care will count towards your compulsory policy excess and any voluntary policy excess.
