Ministry of Health (MOH) subsidy and funding schemes

Depending on your circumstances and your type of hearing loss, you may qualify for the MOH Hearing Aid Funding Scheme or the MOH Hearing Aid Subsidy Scheme.

The Hearing Aid Funding Scheme?

The Ministry of Health’s Hearing Aid Funding Scheme covers the cost of hearing aids for eligible children and adults who are New Zealand citizens living in New Zealand or who are permanent residents. People are eligible if they:

  • have had a significant hearing loss from childhood, or
  • have hearing loss and a significant visual impairment (for example, Deafblind); or hearing loss and an intellectual disability or a physical disability that limits their ability to communicate safely and effectively, or
  • have a Community Services Card and are:
    • in paid employment for 30 hours per week or more, or
    • a registered job seeker seeking paid employment, or
    • doing voluntary work (more than 20 hours per week), or
    • studying full time, or
    • caring full time for a dependent person.

Other funding options

Funding and subsidies from the Ministry of Health (MOH) Hearing Aid Schemes are not the only way for you to invest in your hearing.

Audika can also work with you to determine if you are eligible for funding or a subsidy through the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC)2. If no funding or subsidies are available, Audika offers fee-free, interest free payment plans1 to help make your hearing solutions more affordable.
