Hear at Home Helps with Veterans Affairs Canada Audio Services
Canadian veterans may be eligible for Audio Services provided through Veterans Affairs Canada. Individuals who meet the eligibility requirements will receive treatment benefits under the Veterans Health Care Regulations.
Basic Eligibility Requirements
Hearing loss and hearing disorders, such as tinnitus, that are diagnosed by a health professional may be eligible for hearing tests, the provision of hearing aids, and hearing aid accessories, as well as assistive devices and other services as listed in the audio services benefit grids.
Audio services eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis in order to help restore veterans to a state of independent functioning and/or facilitate their social adjustment.

The health care professional should dispense the following services to the extent required by the individual:
- Hearing Assessments

- Fitting, Adaptation, Verification, And Validation Of An Appropriate Hearing Aid Or Device
- Orientation And Counselling On Its Optimum Use
- Adjustments As Required
- Follow-Up Of Client Satisfaction Following A Trial Period Of Ninety (90) Days
Hearing Aids that Qualify
Hearing aids that qualify can include instruments with various levels of technology (entry level, intermediate, and advanced), and various styles (BTE [behind-the-ear], ITE [in-the-ear], CIC [completely-in-the-canal], etc.) and are provided based on the level of hearing loss and demonstrated need for the requested technology or style.
Accessories which are not normally included in the original hearing aid (e.g., cords, dry aid kits, coatings, directional microphones, auto coils, filters, manual t-coils and remote control) may also be provided in cases where they are deemed necessary for the optimum use of the device.
