HEARING TESTING

At GP on Beaufort we have specialised equipment for hearing testing.

Please advise our reception staff when making your appointment that you are wanting a hearing test. This test is done by our nurse and takes about 15 to 20 minute, and following the test you will be seen by the doctor.

A fee for this service applies, and a rebate from Medicare also applies. If the test is for pre-employment or insurance reasons the above rebate does not apply.

For those patients who meet the following criteria, we can refer you to The Australian Government Hearing Services Program.

Eligibility Criteria

  1. Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card Holder
  2. Centrelink Sickness Allowance
  3. DVA Pensioner Concession Card Holder
  4. White Health Repatriation Card (for hearing loss)
  5. Gold Health Repatriation Card
  6. Dependant person of one of the above categories
  7. Member of the Australian Defence Forces.


Please advise the reception staff you are requiring a hearing test when booking your appointment.
