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.
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.
