Funding Applications for Children

Important notice: Hearing aid funding applications for children through Enable New Zealand

Please ensure that all children’s hearing aid funding applications sent to Enable New Zealand correctly identify whether the hearing loss is ACC related. Please provide the child’s ACC claim number on the application.

ACC provides cover for children whose hearing loss was a result of an injury, an accident (or a combination of both) or treatment injury.

The child’s application will still be processed by Enable New Zealand in the usual manner but by identifying that the child has ACC cover will allow Enable New Zealand to seek reimbursement from ACC.

Correct completion of applications is an area of practice which the Ministry of Health focus on when conducting their audit and compliance visits to audiology practices.
