Expert Medical Alert Review 2018

In a nutshell: Medical Alerts provides portable and easy to use monitoring systems to make sure loved ones stay safe at home or when going out. New customers enjoy their first month free. Medical Alerts sells a range of lightweight devices with features such as fall detection and a GPS locator.

Overview

People who need peace of mind in the event of a medical emergency, especially seniors living alone, can depend on Medical Alert systems. Medical Alert offers flexible plans and pricing with both in-home and GPS-enabled systems. The device is portable and easy to wear around either the neck or wrist. Medical Alert also offers fall detection.

By pushing the button, the device connects the user with one of the operators standing by 24/7. The user can communicate through a 2-way speaker. In case of an emergency, the operator can dispatch a paramedic, police officer, or firefighter. They can also contact a designated family member or neighbor.

Cost

Similar to other systems, Medical Alert gives the option of different payment methods. Customers can pay annually, semi-annually, or monthly, though the best value comes with the purchase of an annual plan. Medical Alert offers free shipping on all of their products. You also get one month free through the annual plan.

Contract

Although purchasing an annual plan gives the best value, customers can choose to commit to monthly and semi-annual plans as well. In all plans, there are no long-term contracts, so customers have the ability to cancel the service at any time.

Equipment

Medical Alert offers quality products for at home, on the go, and specifically for fall detection. The at-home equipment can be used with or without a landline connection and includes a base unit as well as an emergency alert necklace or bracelet.

The MobileElite equipment provides advanced protection on the go. This type of equipment includes a few different portable and lightweight options which users can carry as a handheld device or wear on their wrist or neck. They come with GPS location services and fall detection.

Customer Support

Customers can conveniently purchase their plan through the Medical Alert website. For support, customers can easily reach a Medical Alert representative by phone. Medical Alert also has social media pages on Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn.
