13.2.1. An insured person having a hearing deficiency is entitled to claim from the Board the payment of the cost determined by regulation for the services and hearing aids referred to in the seventh paragraph of section 3 that have been provided to him in accordance with the conditions prescribed by regulation, on presentation of an application for reimbursement the form of which is accepted by the Board, provided that the Board has obtained from the insured person the information it needs to justify the payment claimed.
The insured person is not entitled to claim payment in excess of the cost determined by regulation for such a service, or in excess of the amount already paid by the insured person.
The Board may assume, on behalf of such an insured person up to the amount determined by regulation, the payment of the cost of an insured service referred to in the first paragraph. It shall only do so if the insured person presents an application for payment the form of which is accepted by the Board and furnishes the Board with the appropriate information.
The provider of such a service may be paid only for the service actually performed and only up to the amount determined by regulation.
