Veterans’ Affairs New Zealand (VA) has set this schedule of fees to be effective from 11 September 2023.
This schedule is intended to ensure that veterans get the best results from their hearing aids. It may be useful for a veteran to have an annual check-up, where cleaning and minor repairs may improve the longevity of the devices.
Ear wax removal would also be completed, if required to improve the experience of the veteran’s aids.
Additional appointments have been built into the schedule to cover possible fault-finding appointments up to the annual threshold. They can be conducted on an as-needed basis.
Veterans’ Affairs will issue a Purchase Order for the maximum amount of $2,300 including GST to the Audiology business selected by the veteran for a two-year period.
