Hearing aids are typically not covered under health insurance in India. Most health insurance policies in India do not include coverage for hearing aids, as they are considered to be a form of assistive device rather than medical treatment.
However, some health insurance policies may provide coverage for hearing aids in specific cases, such as when they are required due to a medical condition or as part of a surgical procedure. It is important to review the specific terms and conditions of your health insurance policy to determine whether or not hearing aids are covered.
Additionally, some government schemes or programs may provide financial assistance for hearing aids. For example, the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment has a scheme called the ADIP (Assistance to Disabled Persons for Purchase/Fitting of Aids/ Appliances) scheme, which provides financial assistance for assistive devices such as hearing aids to eligible persons with disabilities.
It is recommended to consult with an audiologist or hearing healthcare professional to determine the best course of action for obtaining hearing aids and to explore all available options for financial assistance.
