Hearing Aid Services

When people have an accepted claim with us for occupational noise-induced or traumatic hearing loss, we refer them to our network of Hearing Aid Service providers. This network is made up of providers who have long-term contracts with us. These contracts come up for bidding periodically. Our Hearing Aid Services program covers hearing aids and related services for workers with accepted work-related hearing loss claims.

Reference manual and fee schedule

The Hearing Aid Provider Services Agreement and the Hearing Aid Provider Reference Manual explain all of our program requirements. The Hearing Aid Provider Quick Reference Guide provides a summary of common program processes. Please refer to the Hearing Aid Provider Fee Schedule for a list of fee codes and services.

Please note that a hearing aid is replaced only when it meets one or more of the replacement criteria set out by WorkSafeBC, regardless of its age. Additionally, if the aid is less than five years old, prior authorization is required before the new hearing aid may be dispensed.
