You can report the loss to the insurance in AIG if the device is lost, stolen or so damaged that it cannot be repaired.

You report the damage on our website.

Remember to always include the following when reporting a claim:

  • Copy of Warranty Card or equivalent delivery documentation
  • Copy of the invoice/receipt for the purchase of a new hearing aid
  • Confirmation from the supplier that the appliance cannot be repaired
  • Confirmation from the police that the robbery/theft of the hearing aid has been reported to the police
  • Other relevant documentation

We want claims to be reported electronically. If you cannot report the injury yourself, you can ask a family member, friend, responsible health personnel or similar to help you report the injury electronically.

If you cannot get help reporting the damage, contact us on +47 22 00 20 80.

The insurance covers loss and theft of the hearing aid. The cause must be known and can be linked to a specific time of the injury.

For the insurance to apply, the membership fee for the year must be paid.

  • Loss of/theft of a hearing aid that can be replaced under Norwegian Folketrygd
  • Fitting costs and servicing of the hearing aid, as well as losses due to gradual deterioration/wear and tear, faults or defects in the hearing aid
  • Loss of the hearing aid when it has disappeared during the post, or when the cause is unknown
  • Loss/theft of hearing aids older than 6 years
  • Loss/theft of a hearing aid that occurs outside the insurance period
  • Insurance cases caused by the insured through intent or gross negligence, cf. FAL § 4-9 (2)

There is a deductible of NOK 1,000, which will be deducted from the compensation.

The compensation is limited to NOK 6,000 for the loss of one hearing aid and NOK 12,000 in case of loss of both hearing aids. 

If you have plus insurance, the cover is NOK 10,000 for the loss of one hearing aid and NOK 20,000 in case of loss of both hearing aids. 

When assigning a hearing aid, the supplier/audiographer issues an assignment form, or equivalent documentation. This identifies the user of the hearing aid, the type of hearing aid and shows, among other things, the date when the hearing aid was received. This is essential documentation in accordance with the 6-year rule for the lifetime of the hearing aid. You can request a copy of the award letter from an audiologist or from NAV. 

When the hearing aid is older than 6 years, you have the right to have a new hearing aid covered by Folketrygden up to a certain rate. Contact an audiologist for assistance.

You can read more about this on NAV's website: https://www.nav.no/horeapparat#kort-om. 

You order new hearing aids from your audiologist.

If you have taken out plus insurance, you have been sent insurance documents directly.

If your hearing aid is damaged, you must in the first instance send it to the hearing aid supplier directly or to the Hearing Center for repair. If it is possible to repair the appliance, the repair is completely free for you. In terms of experience, we see that it is often possible to repair appliances that have been stepped on or that have had a round in the washing machine.

If the appliance cannot be repaired, but must be replaced with a new one, the supplier will confirm this to you in writing. Documentation of a damaged hearing aid is sent together with other documentation when reporting the damage.
