Fall Alert Your Guide to Medical Alerts

Does Medicare cover fall alert services?

by admin on September 21, 2011

Medicare really only covers fall alert services for seniors on rare occasions. This is done on a case by case basis depending on your individual situation. So there is a chance that they will cover this service for you. Medical alert systems are a grey area as far as Medicare is concerned. They do cover “medical preventative services” but do not list fall alert devices either under services that they cover or don’t cover. As you know, medical alert systems are a very effective way to prevent further medical problems that may result from falls or other medical emergencies. Getting help quickly can make a big difference to your continued good health. I recommend calling Medicare and talking to a representative about your situation and whether they will cover a fall alert service for you.
