Providence Lifeline Medical Alert gives individuals of all ages access to personal support and emergency assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's ideal for those recuperating at home from illness or surgery and for the elderly or physically challenged who want to remain and live more independently in
their own homes.
How it works
Lifeline subscribers can press a lightweight, waterproof call button, worn around their neck or on their wrist, whenever they need assistance. The button activates a small in-home unit called a communicator. An emergency response associate responds immediately and helps determine what kind of help is
needed. Depending on the need, the emergency response associate may call an ambulance or a neighbor for assistance. The communicator can also
be activated through an auto alert fall detection technology.
What it costs
The lifeline program requires a one-time installation fee and monthly charge. Please contact Providence Lifeline for more information at 503-537-1463 or 800-556-2009.
Medicare does not cover the cost of Lifeline services. Medicaid may pay for Lifeline service if you qualify; please discuss with your case manager. Lifeline does offer financial assistance for subscribers who do not have the ability to pay.
Medicare has neither reviewed nor endorsed this information.
