Rebates for Hearing Tests
Medicare Rebates for Hearing Tests
You do not need a referral to see an Audiologist. However, if you have a referral from a Medical Practioner (e.g. your GP, Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist, Neurologist), you will be able to claim a Medicare Rebate for the assessment. Please be aware that the cost of seeing your GP or an Ear Nose and Throat surgeon can be more expensive than the amount Medicare will rebate, so unless you already have one of these referrals we do not suggest you go out of your way to get one.
