Medical Emergency Monitoring
Emergency monitoring systems, also called personal emergency response systems (PERS), refer to any electronic devices that connect you with emergency response at the touch of a button. Emergency monitoring systems can give elderly or disabled people the freedom to live independently and safely.
Emergency monitoring systems are available to rent, lease or buy, depending on the company you choose to subscribe with. The cost of an emergency monitoring system is rarely covered by Medicare/Medicaid, so the subscriber or the subscriber's family usually has to pay for the entire system.
The conditional costs of emergency monitoring vary from company to company but many require you to pay for the equipment (either a monthly rental/lease fee or a purchase price), plus the installation and a monthly monitoring fee (between $15 and $50). An entire emergency monitoring system starts at about $200 and can cost more than to $1,500.
