Loss coverage

Should your sound processor go missing during the initial system or upgrade warranty period, our loss coverage allows you to replace it completely free of charge* (one time only per device, per side). Once you have made a claim on the sound processor, the loss coverage is no longer available.

Note: Cochlear technology is constantly evolving. Next-generation sound processors are designed to deliver new capabilities and work with your existing implant. As new technology is developed, older sound processors may become outdated and obsolete, and Cochlear may decide to phase out production and support of aging technology. Keep in mind Cochlear™ Nucleus® Sound Processor technology that is compatible with your current implant will remain available so that you can continue to hear without the need for additional surgery.


Please seek advice from your health professional about treatments for hearing loss. Outcomes may vary, and your health professional will advise you about the factors which could affect your outcome. Always read the instructions for use. Not all products are available in all countries. Please contact your local Cochlear representative for product information.

Views expressed are those of the individual. Consult your health professional to determine if you are a candidate for Cochlear technology.
