How do I apply for early funding if my client's hearing needs change?

Hearing assessors may apply for early funding under 'Genuine and Exceptional Circumstances' if the person meets the Ministry of Health eligibility criteria.

For example, if your client has had hearing aids funded in the past 6 years but now needs stronger hearing aids.

Ensure you attach the person's current and previous audiograms to your service request.

Our Professional Advisor will review the application and advise you if early funding will be granted.
