Does Medicare/Medicaid Cover Medical Alert Systems?
Currently, we are not able
to accept Medicare, Medicaid, or any insurance as payment. We encourage our
members to contact their health insurance provider to see if their plan will
issue a reimbursement for a medical alert system.
How Can You Pay?
Alert1 accepts payment from
credit cards, debit cards, and checks through automatic withdrawal. We accept
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
Ordering a medical alert
system is simple and easy. Call our Sales Representatives at 1-800-693-5433 or order
Alert1 Medical Alert Systems
As seniors age, they desire
the assurance that they will receive help in a medical emergency. Medical alert
systems are designed to give seniors this security. Our systems are connected
through home landlines, cellular or GPS technology to cover seniors wherever
they go. Alert1 offers both home and mobile alert systems to fit your needs. These
devices can include fall detection which senses a fall and contacts emergency
services in case the senior is unable to.
When a senior presses their
medical alert button, it connects them to our CSAA 5-Diamond Certified Command Center. Our operators will contact 911 or family
members while they stay on the line until help arrives.
Alert1 provides monthly or
annual plans to accommodate our member’s financial needs. The monthly plan
gives the member the ability to sign up for our program without feeling locked
into a contract. When a member signs up for the annual service plan, they
receive a discounted monthly cost for paying annually. The annual plan offers a
30-day money-back guarantee. If a member decides a medical alert system is not
right for them, we can refund 100% of the payment if the system has been tested
within the first 30 days.
Medicare and Medicaid
Seniors aged 65 and older
are able to qualify for Medicare. Medicare is the federal health insurance
program that covers a variety of health care expenses. There are different
parts to Medicare that cover different services.
Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a
nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care. Medicare Part B covers certain doctors' services, outpatient care,
medical supplies, and preventive services. Medicare
Part C (Medicare Advantage) is a private health insurance plan which
contains services from Part A, Part B, and additional benefits. Medicare Part D is optional
prescription drug coverage.
Medical alert systems are
not typically covered by Part A or Part B, Medicare. Certain Medicare Part C
plans may cover medical alert systems in special circumstances.
Medicaid is a state and federal program that provides
health coverage for people with limited incomes. Each state has varying rules
about eligibility for Medicaid. Benefits and services provided are change from
state to state.
Dual eligible citizens can
qualify for Medicare and Medicaid at the same time. Citizens who are eligible
for both programs have most of their health care costs covered.
