Benefits of medical alert systems

skyline

Medical alert systems are a lifeline for those with mobility issues or at risk of falling. Over 12% of people in Lexington are 65 or older, and close to 9% under 65 have a disability. Medical alert systems in Lexington have many benefits for these residents:

  • Ability to maintain independent living
  • 24/7 monitoring by trained professionals
  • At-home and on-the-go functionality
  • Available advanced technology like fall detection and activity monitoring
  • Affordability
  • Risk-free trial

How do medical alert systems work?

A medical alert system includes a wearable device — often a medical alert bracelet or necklace — with a button the user can press to call an emergency operator or emergency contact.

An at-home system includes a base station with a speaker and works over a landline or cellular network. An on-the-go system includes a wearable and a separate portable device with the speaker, or is totally self-contained in one necklace. It has GPS technology and functions over a cellular network.

How much do medical alert systems cost?

Monitored medical alert systems, which connect the user to a trained emergency operator, cost between $20 and $90 per month, including rented equipment and a subscription to the monitoring service. Unmonitored medical systems have only an upfront charge for the equipment, usually from $100 - $300.

Other factors that affect the cost of medical alert systems in Lexington include:

  • At-home vs. on-the-go: Mobile medical alert systems are slightly more expensive than home-based systems.
  • Fall detection: Systems with this technology can detect falls and automatically place an emergency call without the user pushing a button. Automatic fall detection causes $5 - $15 extra per month.
  • Accessories: Medical alert companies sell additional wearables, wall-mounted buttons, lockboxes, carrying cases, car chargers and protection plans.
  • Subscription length: The longer the period of service you purchase, the better value you may receive. Medical alert companies may offer subscriptions ranging from one month to one year.

Look for a medical alert company that doesn’t charge for shipping or activation and allows you to cancel anytime and receive a prorated refund. Your medical alert system in Lexington should also come with a risk-free trial.

AARP medical alert systems

Most health insurance plans, including Original Medicare, don’t cover medical alert systems in Lexington. Some Medicare Advantage and long-term care insurance plans may provide coverage for medical alert systems. Check with your provider to be sure.

Medical alert companies may offer discounts for members of AARP or other groups. Ask a medical alert company about discounts and promotions to be certain you get the lowest price.
