  • provision of hearing aids through the Office of Hearing Services;

  • provision of Alternative Listening Devices through the Rehabilitation Appliances Program (RAP); and

  • provision of support for tinnitus through the DVA Tinnitus Program, if tinnitus is an accepted condition on the DVA Health Card.
