If you had your hearing aids funded by ACC, your batteries are included as part of your ACC cover.  In the past ACC hearing aid batteries were sent out automatically every 6 months or so, but this lead to some people accumulating more batteries than the needed. Now, when you run out of batteries you must request for more to be sent to you.

When you finalised you hearing aids your Audiologist sent in a battery request form for your ACC hearing aid batteries. ACC knows the size and type of batteries you need. The quantity of batteries you are expected to need is also on file and they are allocated to you each 6 months or so.
