There are several funding options available to help offset the price of Hearing Aids and assistive listening devices. At Davidson's, we guide you through every step of this process and help you work with the applicable government agencies. As well, because hearing is so important to socialization and learning we have started a program for kids to help ensure that they can have hearing aids necessary for their development.
Funding Options That We Have Available
We understand that there is no single way to manage your finances. That is why we are excited to offer you this all new approach to hearing healthcare. For those individuals who prefer to manage expenses on a monthly budget rather than incur a large upfront expenditure, our exclusive Hearing Aid Rental Program offers many advantages.
Please visit the Hearing Aid Rental Program page for more details.
Since December 12, 1988 the Ontario Ministry of Health’s Assistive Devices Program (ADP) has paid a portion of the cost of hearing aids for all Ontario residents who need them. At the present time a grant is available for both left and right hearing aids. For more information please visit the Ministry of Health website.
We have the required ADP forms and will assist you in having them filled out. Once the paperwork is done we will submit the form on your behalf and deduct the portion paid by ADP from your invoice so that you don’t have to wait for any reimbursement.
The city of Ottawa will provide additional support to the ADP funding for those in need who are not receiving social assistance. More information about the program, call Community Supports at 613-580-2424 (ext. 24994).
We have many patients who are veterans and routinely deal with Veterans Affairs Canada. Whether you are looking for coverage for the first time or are ready to upgrade your current hearing aids, we have all the necessary forms to process your claims. We also perform hearing and tinnitus evaluations for pension re-assessment on a regular basis. Please call us at 613-233-3149 if we can be of assistance to you.

We all know that hearing is very important, especially for developing children. That is why we have started our Kids Program. What does that mean? We are now providing our children’s hearing aids without any dispensing fee. This will not only reduce costs for families, but will also help to ensure that kids are wearing the hearing aids they need, not just the cheapest option. Another benefit of our childrens program is priority appointment times and expedited orders and repairs. This will ensure that your child does not go too long without their hearing aid. And if they do need to send an aid in for a repair, we will provide a similar loaner hearing aid while it is away. Please call or e-mail us if you have any more questions about our Kids Program.
