About this group
Why buy insurance for your hearing aid?
While hearing aids are fairly robust devices, they are not indestructible. They can be damaged through impact, exposure to water or even a playful pet (dogs sometimes view hearing aids as toys to be chewed).
Also, hearing aids are getting smaller; and while small is beautiful, small is also easier to lose.
Insurance can help with the cost of repairing or replacing a hearing aid if it is damaged, lost, fails mechanically or is stolen.
Why join the hearing aid insurance group?
Around two million people in the UK own hearing aids (although a recent report by Action on Hearing Loss suggests an additional four million people may benefit from using them).
So it's surprising there are so few options for hearing aid users in the UK who want to insure their devices. And the few policies that do exist only cover up to £1,000.
We've used the collective buying power of our members to get hearing aid owners better cover and a fairer deal.

Community questions and answers
I just received a quote from Assetsure for insurance on a pair of hearing aids with a market value of £2590. They quoted me a cost of £16.46. That's a far cry from the £3.10 per month you're advertising them as. Admittedly they're expensive aids and I anticipated paying a bit more than £3.10 per month, but over 500% more? Hardly an attractive offer.
Hi there Steve, thank you for getting in touch. I am really sorry to hear you were disappointing with your quote. The £3.10 is quoted on a device worth around £500. Unfortunately the more pricey ones will cost more, and as they are an item that is regularly lost, the insurance is priced accordingly. I appreciate you taking the time to feedback and we will certainly keep your comments in mind. Thank you. Heidi

phonak hearing aidsView all 6 answers
Hi, I have just bought a pair of top hearing aids in the Phonak range, and my audiologist has told me to insure each at the individual price (approx £2995). I have looked at the i-q insurance cover and even at the premium level it does not cover for more than £1000 per item. Has anyone any idea what I can do? Many thanks, Lorraine
Hi Lorraine, Thanks for getting in touch you are correct the offer we have is for cover up to £1000. Give us a few days and try and investigate some other options.
I too am having a problem with sorting out cover for my two aids value £1600 each. It makes things so stressful.
Hi Chris, and many thanks for your comment. We are actually in discussions at the moment with a company who can insure Hearing Aids up to the value of £10,000, so I'm hopeful we will have a new offer available in the coming weeks. If you are keen to sort out insurance for your hearing aids straight away, let me know & I can put you in touch with the insurance company directly. Best wishes, Sam
Please could you let me have the details asap. Thanks
Hi again Chris, just to let you know I have just sent you an email with the information. Best wishes, Sam
