Hearing Aid Batteries sign now

Currently, people with hearing aids/cochlear implants, over the age of 21, are not entitled to free batteries, unless they are on a particular pension, such as Disability Support Pension. Instead, we are faced with different stores (mainly chemists) of which batteries vary in price, from store to store. Some of us are unemployed, and it can get expensive buying these batteries. We ask for the right to free batteries as well, or at least a significant drop in prices, and equal prices across all stores, which sell them. We should not be discriminated against, and having to fork out extra money, just because we are hearing impaired/deaf.

    I would appreciate not having to pay so much for my hearing aid batteries. I was born deaf, and was very annoyed that I have to pay for my own hearing aid and batteries after I turned 21. I go through one hearing aid battery every 4 days; and pay nearly $

    If deaf people are given hearing aids to wear, then they should be given hearing aids batteries free of charge if they choose to continue wearing them.
