Medical Emergency Alert Systems
One of the biggest concerns that many people have — especially as we get older or if we have older relatives — is what we will do if there is some kind of medical emergency when we are alone or our older loved one is alone. Medical alert systems have been around for a while, but the best ones are monitored medical alert systems.
Wayne Alarm offers professional and fully-monitored systems with 24/7 medical alert monitoring in North Shore, Massachusetts. There’s no calling the company and hoping someone is on the other end of the phone. Our professional medical life alert operators are constantly vigilant, waiting for that call to come in so they can act fast.
When it comes to the people that Wayne Alarm has worked with our central alarm monitoring station, we don’t just take anyone who walks in the door. This is not a job that just anyone can do. Our professional medical life alert operators may hold someone’s life in their hands. We know this, and we make sure they know it too.

Our medical alert system comprises high-quality, highly-sensitive microphones that can pick up a distress call even from another room, with equipment that you can count on to function just as advertised exactly when you need it.
Wayne Alarm protects you and your family in cases of a medical emergency with four simple steps:
24/7 alert monitoring: Our caring professionals stand by 24/7 at our local monitoring station in case of a medical emergency. These professional monitoring station operators have been carefully vetted for their vigilance and ability to respond quickly and clearly in a crisis situation.
You make the call: Our Alarm Monitoring Central Station will immediately alert via a single, easily accessible ‘EMERGENCY’ button. A wireless remote activator in the base unit allows you to activate the system when you are away from the main receiver–whether you’re in another room or enjoying time in your backyard.
Two-way communication: Once alerted, Wayne Alarm PERS units allow for direct two-way radio communication between you and our Monitoring Center Alarm Dispatcher. A high-quality microphone in the base unit allows you to be heard clearly from another room or even over large distances, offering you total mobility and peace of mind.
Call to action: The appropriate emergency personnel will immediately be contacted and dispatched to your home.
If you’re looking to protect yourself or a loved one with a personal emergency response system but aren’t sure how to pay for it, you’re not alone. Many users require financial support to afford their medical alert devices. Fortunately, various options make this assistance possible.
If you’re one of the millions of individuals who receive insurance coverage from Medicare, you may be aware of some of the expenses that are considered essential under the program, such as hospitalization and prescription medication. However, many people are surprised to discover that Medicare typically doesn’t provide coverage for medical alert systems because they do not directly improve an individual’s health.
Fortunately, there is a way you can potentially receive financial support for your personal emergency response system through Medicare. Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, is a supplemental health plan that offers additional benefits and services to policyholders. This plan is the most likely to cover medical alert devices, especially if a doctor deems it medically necessary.
Like Medicare, not all Medicaid programs cover medical alert systems. However, you can request assistance and qualify for coverage in numerous ways. The following four Medicaid programs may pay or help pay for your emergency response device:
Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS): HCBS programs offer waivers for personal emergency response services, though these services vary by state. Some plans allow policyholders up to $75 a month to use their medical alert systems, while others provide a one-time payment for equipment expenses.
Money Follows the Person: This program aims to help those in nursing homes and assisted living facilities return to their homes and provides payment for services that support that goal, including emergency alert systems.
Consumer Directed Services: In some states, Medicaid offers older adults funding without limitations on what health-related items they cover, meaning you can use these funds for medical alert devices.
Personal Care Attendant: If you live in certain states, you can use this program to help cover the cost of caregiving, which sometimes includes medical alert systems.
All private health insurance plans are different, so some may cover the cost of emergency response systems, while others will not. Some insurance providers also require a doctor’s recommendation validating a qualifying condition before they’ll pay for the device.
Because long-term care insurance policies are meant to support policyholders as they age, most of these plans cover medical alert devices, whether that be a portion of the cost or the complete cost. You may also qualify for coverage under durable medical equipment policies.
