Q) Does Medicaid cover life alert for seniors in South Bend, IN?
A) Medicare does not pay for Life Alert or any other emergency response service. Some state Medicaid programs may pay for a medical alert system; it depends on the specific state in which you live. There are organizations which are dedicated to helping low-income and other people with their medical needs. Such programs could pay for medical alert devices. Call your state Medicaid office and ask if they have programs that cover life alert systems.
