A semi-implantable bone conduction hearing device that is attached to the skull by an osseointegrated titanium fixture. The system transmits the sound to the inner ear through bone conduction thereby bypassing the problems in the outer or middle ear. Individuals who suffer from a conductive, mixed or single-sided sensorineural hearing loss can benefit from the BAHA. Individuals who have private health insurance are covered for the cost of the BAHA system as long as the level of hospital cover includes surgically implanted prostheses and other items on the Federal Government’s Prostheses List. Limited public funding is available in Australia. Future BAHA adjustments are bulk-billed.
