Hearing Services Program

Using the portal

The portal aims to reduce red tape and improve access to the program by providing real-time eligibility checking and application processing for clients, reducing the waiting time and the number of paper forms needed to access hearing services.

Clients can use the portal to

  • confirm their eligibility for the program
  • submit an application for a hearing services voucher
  • view the local hearing services provider directory in a searchable map
  • check if they are already in the program and
  • confirm their last known provider, if they have one.

Contracted service providers can use the portal to

  • help clients to apply for a hearing services voucher
  • process a return voucher with client consent
  • view and manage client details
  • submit a request to transfer a client from another service provider with client consent
  • manage their own site location details, which also updates the interactive local hearing services provider directory and
  • submit manual claims.
