All Saskatchewan residents are eligible to receive services through
the Hearing Aid Plan. The Hearing Aid Plan provides:
- audiological evaluation;
- hearing aids and fittings;
Professional audiologists perform complete hearing exams on children
and adults. An audiologist is a specialist in testing hearing and
recommending appropriate hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Plan audiologists work closely with physicians, public
health nurses, and speech language pathologists to ensure clients
get a complete range of hearing treatment and rehabilitation services.
The Right Model
Your audiologist selects the best hearing aid for your
hearing loss. There is a large selection of aids, such as in-the-ear
and behind-the-ear models. Trained technicians help fit you with
a hearing aid and show you how to use it properly. All hearing aids
purchased through the Hearing Aid Plan are under warranty for two
years. Some companies offer extended packages.
The Hearing Aid Plan provides repair services for hearing
aids, whether or not they were purchased through the plan. If possible,
your aid will be replaced right at the Hearing Aid Plan offices.
Sometimes extensive repairs require sending the hearing aid to
the manufacturer for repair. In this case, the Hearing Aid Plan
will lend you a hearing aid while yours is being repaired, depending
on the model you use.
A number of hearing aid accessories are available through
the Hearing Aid Plan. Batteries are available only with the purchase
of a new hearing aid. Additional batteries can be purchased at most
