Grant aid towards the purchase of hearing aids
Important healthcare decisions should not be determined by cost, and hearing aids can be expensive. Thankfully, the Department of Social Protection Treatment Benefit Scheme contributes to the purchase price of hearing aids. If you are employed, self-employed or retired, and have paid the required number of PRSI contributions*, you qualify for the full cost of a hearing aid up to a maximum of €500 (€1,000 for a pair) once every fourth calendar year. The government will also pay the full cost of repairs to aids, up to a maximum of €100, once every fourth calendar year.
