Reimbursement by the social insurances
METAS is mandated to maintain for the FSIO a list of all the hearing aids for which the social insurances will pay a fixed amount to the assured according to the corresponding ordinances. Hearing aids are added to the list after homologation. Thereby conformity can be established based on measurements performed by METAS or based on detailed measurement reports from another approved independent laboratory (such as the DHI). In this way only apparatus will be reimbursed which are suitable to treat hearing deficiencies and which satisfy international standards. Equipment which does not qualify as hearing aid in the stricter sense is not included in this list. In case of doubts the FSIO decides whether they want to exclude a given type from this list.
The current list of homologated hearing aids is available below.
