Compare Medical Alert Alternatives

By  | ConsumerAffairs.com

A quick Internet search yields many medical alert clones. While Comparing the prices and terms can be a baffling task, especially for seniors who may not be incredibly Internet savvy, there’s little doubt there are savings to be had.

ConsumerAffairs.com compared the prices and terms of medical alert providers and what we discovered was that they all use similar technology.

Click here for a comparison of the best medical alert providers.

In our research we found that it is important to compare set-up fees, monthly prices, contractual terms, spousal coverage and pendant range.  Anyone shopping for a home medical alarm should ask for a list of local references and read the contract carefully.

Elderly persons should also check with their Area Agency on Aging. The AAAs are regional public or, in some cases, private not-for-profit, agencies that coordinate services and information for the elderly. A complete list of agencies is available at www.n4a.org/.

  1. Good info! I had heard of some consumer affairs issues in the past so it’s good to know who is reputable and who is not.

  2. Very helpful information. Just as you said, looking for a personal medical alert system can be a daunting task especially because there are so many options available. It is useful to look at BBB ratings and consumer affairs ratings too. Reading reviews on blog sites is another good thing to do before deciding which system to go with. Good info, thanks!
