Why do some clinics offer free hearing tests?

Hearing tests are only covered by OHIP if the testing is done in an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist’s office. Some clinics offer “free hearing tests,” but they are often screenings to see if you pass or fail and not a full diagnostic test. If the test is more complete, and the client wants a copy of the test or a report sent to their physician, a fee will then apply. We believe in full diagnostic hearing tests. We evaluate all parts of your hearing, explain the results, and send out reports as required.
