10. Fair Usage Policy - Todays Hearing Aid manufacturers set narrow parameters for the way their hearing aids should be set up and programmed. We follow their recommendations closely and 95%+ patients are satisfied with the first-fit / initial recommended settings. Indeed, movement outside these parameters usually results in the need to revert back to the settings initially recommended by the manufacturers. 2-3 fine-tunings sessions per year should be ample to reach the optimum settings whilst still staying within the manufacturers guidelines. We consider 5 free annual appointments of any type to be 'Fair Usage' and reserve the right to charge for more than 5 sessions in any 12 month period. There are millions, if not billions of permutations within the hearing aid settings and experimentation with settings will be charged for if this exceeds more than 5 sessions per year.
11. Debt recovery - In the event that we deem it necessary to employ the services of a debt agency to recover any overdue accounts, you will be responsible for any charges levied by them in recovering debt together with any costs incurred in respect of legal action taken by us or on our behalf.
