Our Satisfied Customers
I have been very pleased with the quick response to the times I have needed help. I appreciate the fact that my children are notified when I have had your service. It relieves my children knowing I wear and use my wrist band. I certainly recommend this service for anyone and their peace of mind."
I was very impressed with my first experience at using the Medical Alert system. They dispatched EMS immediately and they helped me to get off the floor when they got here. Thankful I had my Medical Alert wristband on when I fell."
I was away on vacation and became very ill. I pushed the button and Medical Alert took care of getting first responders, an ambulance and notifying my family. I was very happy with the help I received!"
Service is excellent. I had the misfortune to have to call for help. You got to the EMT's immediately who then followed up and took me to the ER. Your agents are kind especially when I have false alarms."

Frequently Asked Questions
How much do Medical Alert systems cost?
Medical Alert systems start at $19.95/mo. Prices vary depending on the system, rate plan and add-ons selected. To find the right Medical Alert system for your lifestyle, please complete our free medical monitoring assessment.
Who should wear a Medical Alert system?
A Medical Alert system is ideal for anyone who would like peace of mind by getting 24-hour protection in case of a medical emergency, fire or break-in by simply having a help button. It is especially for older adults or seniors who live alone and as shown by studies are more likely to suffer a fall at home. A Medical Alert system can also be used as a panic button. This emergency response system is available with fall detection, which alerts an Response Specialist in the event of a fall even if you are unable to push your help button.
What types of Medical Alert systems are available?
We have options for different lifestyles. Our Home System works with a landline or cellular connection and provides protection in and around the house up to 800-ft. Our Mobile System includes GPS location services so that you can get help wherever you are—at home or on the go. All our Medical Alert systems are available with fall detection technology that adds a layer of protection in the event of a fall where you cannot call out for help.
How do Medical Alert systems work?
It’s simple: You wear a Medical Alert help button on a lanyard or bracelet and push your button if you need emergency help. The help button then sends a signal to the two-way speaker, which connects you with one of our monitoring center's trained Response Specialist. The Response Specialist assesses the situation and sends appropriate emergency help—family, friends or first responders.
What kind of emergency help do I get?
That depends on what kind of emergency you’re having. If it’s a minor situation, Medical Alert can contact somebody (such as a neighbor or loved one) on your contact list and have them go to you. For serious emergencies, our Response Specialist will immediately dispatch an ambulance, or contact the police or fire station, depending on what you need.
Can I use a Medical Alert system if I don’t speak English?
Yes, our Response Specialists include employees who are native speakers of languages other than English; in addition, our Response Specialists are trained to use the International Language Line for real-time translation services in 140 languages. Contact us at 800-800-2537 for more details about the specific language you would need.
