Q.

What does Workmans Compensation Pay for Moderate Hearing Loss

I have recently had a diagnostic hearing evaluation. Results are that I have bilateral mild sensory neural hearing loss. The percentage loss of hearing [PLH] is 11.3%. The audiologist, in her report, said that it is reportable to the Workmans Compensation and furthermore that I would benfit from a hearing aid amplification, bilaterally. I work for a huge company that is well known in South Africa and I have been told that it is a Disabling Injury and I am not allowed into any noise zones. My questions: How much would I get from the Workmans Compensation. Would it cover hearing aid costs. Finally should I allow my work to claim. Are there any implications in claiming. I feel that I do need hearing aid.
