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.
