It’s good that you are looking into insurance for your external speech processor. To replace an external cochlear implant processor would cost somewhere in the order of $9000 to $11,500. Not only would it be devastating to be without your hearing for a while (though I’m sure your implant clinic would be able to o er some short term assistance), it would also be financially challenging for most people. Firstly, check with your implant clinic on how much it would cost to replace your specific device as costs can vary between makes and models. I am aware of several insurance options:

1. Insure under your current home and contents insurance policy
2. Contact your private health insurance company to see if they are open to insuring your device (not all health insurance companies do this and you need to be an Australian resident)
3. Contact Insurance Brokers or Advisers
4. Talk to your Cochlear Implant manufacturer
