Do I really need to pay $11,000 for hearing aids?

My audiologist told me I have moderate hearing loss and need hearing aids. The audiologist has quoted me $11,000 for the devices. Do I need to spend this amount of money on hearing aids? 

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has excellent information that can help you make your decisions. There is a factsheet available from their website.

You may also want to get a second opinion. Independent Audiologists Australia (IAA) is an association of audiologists who own and operate their own practices. There is a directory on their website of clinicians you can search.
