P.E.I. to let private audiologists bill province for hearing tests

CHARLOTTETOWN - Private audiologists in Prince Edward Island will soon be able to bill the province directly for their services.

Beginning in October, Masters-level audiologists will be able to charge the province for hearing tests.

A government spokeswoman says the change comes ahead of an expected rise in hearing loss from the province's aging population.

Also starting in October, referrals to hearing services will be able to come from family doctors, nurse practitioners, public health nurses and language pathologists.

Islanders accessing these services must be over the age of four and can see a private audiologist every two years.
