Types of Hearing Aids

At Hearing Partners, we offer 2 main types of hearing aids — behind-the-ear (BTE) and in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids.

Traditional BTE hearing aids

Behind-the-ear

BTE hearing aids are discreet devices that can be separated into 2 main styles — traditional BTE and receiver-in-the-ear (RITE/RIC).

For both styles, the casing that houses the electrical components is worn behind the ear, while the speaker is worn in the ear canal.

Completely in the canal hearing aid

In-the-ear

There are 3 main styles of ITE hearing aids including in-the-canal (ITC), invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) and completely-in-the-canal (CIC).

As these devices sit inside the ear canal, they are custom-made to fit each individual user.

Hearing Aid Subsidies in Singapore

There are 2 main subsidies available in Singapore that help to make hearing aids more affordable for those with hearing loss. They are the Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund (SMF) and the Assistive Technology Fund (ATF).

To apply for these schemes, you will need to approach an application administrator or assessor from institutions such as hospitals or social service agencies (e.g. a therapist or social worker).

Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund

The SMF is a scheme designed to provide aid to Singaporeans aged 60 and above who are staying at home and in need of a mobility or assistive device like a hearing aid. They can also receive subsidies for home healthcare items such as diapers and catheters under this scheme.

This helps alleviate the cost of ageing for seniors in Singapore and allows them to remain active within their community.

Eligibility criteria
The applicant must:

  • Be a Singaporean citizen who is 60 years old and above
  • Be residing at home and not in a nursing home or sheltered home
  • Be assessed by a qualified assessor for the type of device required
  • Have a monthly household income of $2,000 and below per person

The applicant must also be able to co-pay the assessment fee and the price of the device. Moreover, they should not be receiving or applying for any other public or private grant or subsidy that would exceed the co-payment amount under the SMF.

Subsidy amount (for assistive devices)
Up to 90% of the cost of the mobility aid or the maximum device subsidy cap.

Assistive Technology Fund

The ATF is a scheme that helps individuals with disabilities lead their lives more independently by providing subsidies on the cost of assistive technology devices like hearing aids.

Eligibility criteria
The applicant must:

  • Be a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Be certified to have any one of the following permanent disabilities:
    • Physical disability
    • Intellectual disability
    • Hearing impairment
    • Visual impairment
    • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Be assessed by a qualified assessor for the type of device required
  • Have a monthly household income of $2,000 and below per person

Subsidy amount (for assistive devices)
Up to 90% of the cost of the assistive technology device, with a lifetime cap of $40,000.

Note: Seniors who have successfully applied for the ATF before 60 years old will be supported by the scheme while those who did not apply for this scheme before 60 years old will be supported by the SMF instead.
