Cellular Based Medical Alert Systems – A Review Of Providers & Prices
The new mobile personal emergency response systems (mPERS) are not tethered to a land-line like traditional in-home devices. They operate on the same cellular signal that mobile phones do, offering mobility anywhere there is a cell signal. Here is a list of popular cellular medical alert systems and models available today. Note that monthly plans were selected based on the least expensive month-to-month price plan and NOT based on quarterly or annual contracted rates (which many providers may promote). These prices and plans change regularly, so be sure to check the websites thoroughly before purchasing. The Senior List recommends that you READ THE TERMS & CONDITIONS before purchasing (just as we have done). This can be a painful process, but doing so can save you a lot of headaches down the road. If you have questions, be sure to call the provider’s customer service line to get answers. If you are promised something (like no-questions-asked-return at anytime) by the customer service operator, GET IT IN WRITING before committing.
