Portugal Market Report for Hearing Aids 2016 - MedCore
The total hearing aid market includes both manufacturer revenue and retail revenue. The manufacturer hearing aid market segment represents the revenue generated from manufacturers selling their hearing aids to retailers. The retail hearing aid market segment represents the revenue generated from retailers selling hearing aids to end users. This approach was taken in order to do a comparison of the market revenue of the manufacturers of the hearing aid devices versus the retail hearing aid sales.
As of 2015, adult hearing impaired patients in Portugal did not receive any sort of public reimbursement for purchasing hearing aids; the only way for adult patients to receive reimbursement is through private insurance. However, children under the age of 16 do receive reimbursement for hearing aids.
