Hearing aid coverage in Yukon
Children under 16 years of age in the Chronic Disease and Disability Benefits Program can receive financial assistance for the purchase and repair of hearing aids if they have a permanent hearing loss. In this case, your doctor must apply to the program for you. Wait until your funding is approved before purchasing a hearing aid.
Yukon seniors aged 65 and up who are registered with the Yukon Health Care Insurance Plan can receive hearing aid coverage through its Pharmacare benefits. You should purchase your hearing aid, and then submit your claim to be reimbursed.
However, if you have coverage through an employer or third-party insurer, submit your claim to these insurance providers first. Pharmacare support is a last resort.
Under Pharmacare, you can receive cost-sharing hearing aid coverage, or 100% coverage if it is your only option.
This coverage includes one hearing aid every four years, and repairs and adjustments with a 12-month warranty.
Hearing aid batteries are not covered under Pharmacare.
