Jan. 17: New Process for Getting Hearing Aid Batteries


WCB Nova Scotia introduced a new process for workers to receive hearing aid batteries as well as a new process and fee schedule for hearing health clinics to follow. Batteries for WCB-approved hearing aids can be picked up directly from an approved hearing clinic, as part of the regular annual preventative maintenance visit for the hearing aid. This process will replace the annual cash allowance for purchasing batteries typically provided in June of each year.
