Hearing Aids

In addition to hearing aids, all accessories and repair costs involved are reimbursable (earpiece, tube, mould, etc.). The batteries are also reimbursable up to a maximum of $50 per person per period of 12 consecutive months; a proof of purchase of the hearing aid must be supplied.

The Bulletin MÉDIC Construction for each plan lists the reimbursable amounts.

Limitation to reimbursement

For hearing aids, the maximum amount reimbursable is calculated over a period of 36 consecutive months. The period considered corresponds to the 36 months preceding the date of purchase. The date of purchase is the date of the invoice indicating that the final payment has been made – that is, that the balance to pay is $0. The example given for the limitation of reimbursement for eye care illustrates, adjusting the period to 36 months and the maximum reimbursable, how the reimbursement is calculated.  

Reimbursement of costs

A claim for hearing aids must be made using the Health and Professional Care Claim Form.

Specific conditions, limitations, and exclusions other than those mentioned above may apply; only the Règlement sur les régimes complémentaires d'avantages sociaux dans l'industrie de la construction has legal standing.
