Medical Alert Systems and Insurance Coverage

Medical alerts have been proven to save lives. When no one is home and you need help, there is no better way to get back on your feet than with a medical alert from Alert1.

Despite their well-known effectiveness, medical alert systems are not covered under the portion of Medicare Part B that covers durable medical equipment. In addition, most private insurance plans do not cover senior alert systems. A few states offer programs for qualifying Medicare beneficiaries. Coverage for all seniors would reduce Medicare andMedicaid expenses for seniors. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) changed many parts of healthcare and insurance for seniors, but medical alert devices were not one of them. Some private medicare part C (Medicare Advantage) plans do cover them.

Occasionally insurance companies will reimburse their customers for a medical alert if their medical circumstances merit it and they have a doctor’s note to that effect.  

If you cannot get reimbursement, check to see if you’re eligible for any discounts from Alert1. We offer special pricing for AARP members. As long as you can provide your AARP membership number, you may be eligible for a monthly discount.
