Medicare rebates are applicable when an audiology request comes from an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist (ENT), Neurologist, Paediatrician or GP. Please ask your doctor for a hearing test request for your next audiology appointment. A new request is required for each visit to see us.
Audiology services that attract a Medicare rebate are:
- Pure Tone audiometry (a hearing test);
- Impedance testing (a middle-ear test);
- Speech testing;
- Consultations, wax removal etc. for those on a Chronic Care Plan requiring audiology;
A doctors request is NOT required to claim a Medicare rebate for cochlear implant mapping.
In addition, Medicare will also give rebates for audiology services under the Chronic Disease Management items, Better Start for Children with a Disability initiative and the Helping Children with Autism program. More information can be found on the Medicare website. Please contact us if you would like any further information on (02) 6156 4474
