Hearing Aid Programs & Funding

Several provincial and federal government programs may fund hearing aids and hearing aid services if a private healthcare insurance plan doesn't cover you.

 

Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL)

Did you know that nearly all Alberta residents over the age of 65 may be eligible for hearing aid coverage from our provincial healthcare program? After we confirm your eligibility while in the clinic using your Alberta Health Care card, we'll let you know what you're eligible for. We even take care of direct billing! 

Workers Compensation Board of Alberta (WCB-AB)

If you have a documented history of working in noise and fit the hearing loss criteria WCB-AB uses to determine eligibility, you may be entitled to hearing aid and service coverage. We'll provide a paper application for you to take home after your hearing test, and if approved, we will bill WCB-AB directly.

Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC)

If you are a Canadian Armed Forces member or Veteran or a current or former member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), you may be able to access funding for hearing aids and hearing aid services. Please bring your identification number to your appointment, and we will walk you through the process.

 

Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB)

If you are a First Nations person or an Inuk recognized by an Inuit land claim organization as outlined in Inuit client eligibility for the NIHB program, you may be able to access funding for hearing aids and hearing aid services. Please bring your identification number to your appointment, and we will walk you through the process.

North Star Hearing works and direct-bills Medicard, a monthly financing payment company that our clinicians have worked with for 10+ years.

Common Concerns

Worried about what they'll look like?

We have gorgeous jewel and skin tone colours available, or we can help you find a nearly invisible hearing aid. 


Worried about looking old with them on?

Nodding in agreement to a conversation you can't understand or feeling isolated in social situations is likely worse.  Most even come with Bluetooth so that you can hear your TV or phone better!


Worried about the cost?

We guarantee the lowest prices on the highest quality technology in Northern Alberta. We offer various options and prices and work with all major hearing aid companies. Plus, did you know that Albertans over the age of 65 are eligible for hearing aid coverage from the government? We can tell you how much.

Feel like you can wait until your hearing gets "really bad"?

The neural pathways of the brain and auditory system are important to healthy aging. No matter the severity of hearing loss, taking steps to correct hearing loss sooner than later helps to keep these pathways active and prevent atrophy in the auditory system.

 

We even have research to support that correcting hearing loss can help fight early-onset dementia and Alzheimer's (Bucholc et al., 2021)They can even reduce your risk of falling! Check out the latest large-population research study from the National Library of Medicine publication here.

Hearing aids can provide many benefits for individuals with hearing loss. Some of the most significant benefits include:

1

Social Connections

Improved communication and social interactions: Hearing aids can help improve your ability to hear and understand others, making social situations and communication with friends, family, and colleagues easier and more enjoyable.

2

Quality of Life

Better overall quality of life: Hearing loss can have a negative impact on your overall quality of life, including your relationships, emotional well-being, and mental health. By improving your hearing, hearing aids can help you feel more engaged and connected to the world around you.

3

Safety

Enhanced safety: Hearing aids can help you hear important sounds, such as a smoke alarm, a car horn, or a knock at the door, which can improve your safety in various situations. Flooded sinks often happen for people with hearing loss; the sound of running water is less apparent or gone altogether, and when those sounds are absent, it's easier to forget.

4

Cognitive Function

Improved cognitive function: Research has shown that hearing loss can lead to cognitive decline, including memory loss and a reduced ability to process information. By treating your hearing loss with hearing aids, you may be able to prevent or slow down cognitive decline.

5

Physical Health

Better physical health: Hearing loss has been linked to a number of physical health problems, including an increased risk of falls and other accidents, as well as depression and anxiety. By improving your hearing with hearing aids, you may be able to reduce your risk of these and other health problems.
