Experts say senior financial abuse will become a prevalent problem over the next few decades as the number of seniors grows. Unfortunately, these same seniors are victimized by their own relatives or people they confide and trust in.
Senior Financial abuse takes many forms. Some of the warning signs include:
If you know a senior who may need help, contact your local police precinct or your local Department of Social Services. If you know a senior who is living alone at home who may need a medical alert system, give us a call at 1-800-595-0718.
One of the questions we get all the time is: Does Medicare/Medicaid pay for my medical alert system? The answer is generally no. For the most part, medical alert systems or personal emergency response systems are not covered by Medicare. Sometimes, charitable organizations like churches and non-profits will have senior adult ministries established that may provide some of the costs for medical alert systems. You may also check to see if your state has an Office on Aging and provides Medicaid Waivers for medical alert systems. Sometimes certain localities may provide medicare waivers for PERS but don’t count on it these days with all of the government agencies having to cut and scale back on expenses.
Give us a call at MedFirst Alert if you would like to discuss different pricing options. We accept monthly payments as well as those wishing discounts for annual payments. Our care specialists will be happy to answer all of your questions about affordable pricing and how our medical alert systems work.
