FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE -

SOCIAL WELFARE GRANTS FOR HEARING AIDS

The Department of Social and Family Affairs operates the Treatment Benefit Scheme, under which grants for hearing aids are obtainable. Qualifying patients and their dependant spouses who have full PRSI cover may obtain a grant towards the cost of a hearing aid. This would include full contributory pensioners, invalidity pensioners, those on disability benefit and their dependant spouses. (Conditions apply.)

In the case of one hearing aid being required the grant is 50% of the purchase price of a hearing aid up to a maximum of €500, or 50% of the repair cost of a hearing aid. If two hearing aids are required the maximum grant is 50% of the cost up to a maximum of €1000.

The grant for the purchase of hearing aids will be available once every 4 years.

As a registered panel member of the Department’s Treatment Benefit Scheme, we can complete all the necessary application forms and process this grant on your behalf, which normally takes around 2 weeks.
Medical Card Holders can benefit from superior quality hearing aids by dealing with a private hearing aid dispenser such as Hearing Healthcare Ireland, as long as they are also on the PRSI scheme. The Social Welfare hearing aid grant is available to both qualifying non-medical card and medical card holders when obtaining a hearing aid privately. Please contact our office for further details.
