Are hearing aids covered by insurance in Canada?
Most insurance companies don’t cover hearing aids, which means that people are going without adequate financial support for acquiring them. However, with the Ontario Health Insurance Health Card, costs are covered up to a maximum of $500 per ear. There are additional programs associated with Canada’s workers’ compensation, federal employees’ benefits and Veterans Affairs Canada.

A Variety of Hearing Aid Styles to Choose From
The traditional hearing aid style, which looks like the old analog units but are far different, BTE hearing aids have the most processing power in order to address more severe hearing losses. They feature a processing unit that rests behind the ear, while processed sound is transmitted in various ways, depending on the specific hearing aid style.
Rather than a separate processing unit behind the ear, ITE hearing aids are a single component contained within the same housing. The size and their position within the ear are what distinguishes each style included in this category.
Although some do not have the processing power of BTE devices, the advantages of ITE devices include: less interference with glasses, oxygen cannula or headwear; a more secure fit for more active individuals; and greater wearing discretion.
