The hearing aids are not insured against loss or theft as standard. There are several insurance companies where you can take out insurance especially for your hearing aid. Below we have an overview for which you can insure your hearing aids and the various insurance companies:
Hearing aid defective
A hearing aid comes with a standard two-year manufacturer’s warranty, with Online-HearingAids.com you can extend the warranty period from two years to five years for € 99.00 per hearing aid. If the hearing aid is defective, it is first investigated whether this was caused by normal use or by improper handling. If it is found that the hearing aid is defective due to improper handling, this is not covered by the warranty and costs are involved. If you have taken out insurance and there are costs for the repair, you can declare these costs to the insurance company.
Lost hearing aid
If you have lost a hearing aid and you are insured for this, you can declare the costs of replacement to the insurance company. Most insurance companies do not use a depreciation scheme, which means that they reimburse on the basis of replacement. So even if the hearing aid is four years old, they will reimburse the amount for which the lost hearing aid is insured.
