Govt of India Initiative)

Our sister concern "Bangalore Hearing and Implant Institute" in association with "Apollo Spectra Hospital" have been listed as one of the hospitals empaneled for cochlear implant surgery under the Assistance to Disabled Persons for Purchase/fitting of Aids/Appliances (ADIP) Scheme launched by the Government of India.

The main aim of the ADIP Scheme is to help disabled persons procure scientifically manufactured modern aids that can promote their physical, social, and psychological rehabilitation by reducing disabilities. PwDs are given aids with the aim of making them independent and arresting their secondary disability. The aids and appliances supplied under the scheme are of good quality with a warranty and are BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certified. The ADIP Scheme also helps to conduct corrective surgeries before providing the device to people with disabilities.

There is provision of Cochlear Implant for 500 children per year with Hearing disability with a ceiling of Rs. 6.00 lakh per unit under the Scheme. This will result in providing life long relief for hearing impaired children in the age group of 0 to 5 years.

Around 880 successful Cochlear Implant surgeries have been done by various empanelled hospitals across India and we are proud to announce that Bangalore Hearing and Implant Institute, in association with  Apollo Spectra Hospitals has been listed as one of the hospital empanelled for cochlear implant surgery under ADIP scheme in February 2021.
