Hi
I was wondering if anyone has any information on extended health coverage offered by the CF, specifically involving hearing aids in the case of dependent children?
My 4 year old daughter is going to need them soon, and we are new to the Reg Force health coverage system. My husband(army.ca= Carpediem) is going pilot and is on his BOTP right now, and I am a reserve med A.
It is very hard to find out this sort of information even from my civi health plan, so I was hoping to find someone who might actually have a child with hearing aids already.
Thanks

On the Health Services web site it has what the coverage is.

Due to where I am, I can't point it out specifically for you...

Wow that was fast!
Thanks I found it...$2000 every 48 months for each ear! I think that is better than my civi plan!

no, right page, just did not get specific enough on the plan and its web page...

due to where I am the computers do not access these pages as fast, and I don't have all night to wait for them to open.

But thanks in pointing her in the right direction.

No problem Armymedic

I know where you are and understand the limits of the connections.  I did not want her to think the coverage was better than it really is.  Say hi to the HSS gang, including Capt D McD.

You seem to be an active and valued member of these forums, keep up the good work abroad and via Internet for those of us on the homefront.
