GreatCall functions a bit differently than its primary competitors. The company has added equipment fees as well as activation fees for its alert systems, and this even goes for the basic medical alert system.

Philips Lifeline doesn’t have a specific range for its products. The range varies depending on the location of the communicator and the specifications of the house itself. The company also warns that the range in and around your home must be tested.

At 3 years, Life Alert locks customers into one of the biggest long-term contracts in the industry. Top competitors offer contracts that operate from month-to-month, which provide consumers the peace of mind of not having to buy out of a contract.

While other industry competitors offer no activation fees and a no-cost delivery, Bay Alarm Medical charges for both delivery and activation. Despite these downsides, the company doesn’t require any long-term contracts.

Why Buy a Medical Alert?

Are you worried about the safety of a loved one who’s living alone? Are you afraid that a parent or grandparent has fallen down the stairs and can’t ask for help?

Who can blame you? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) share these startling facts:

  • One in four adults age 65 and older will fall this year.
  • Among older Americans, falls are the number-one cause of death and injury.
  • Falls represent $31 billion in Medicare costs each year.

Thankfully, today there are a number of cost-effective, easy-to-use medical alert systems that can help with immediate assistance. They come in a variety of forms, from bracelets to necklaces and pendants.
