Bay Alarm Medical offered us many more years of independent living for my mother in her life. The confidence and assurance it gave her to have them available at the push of a button allowed her to sleep better and live her life more fully in her condo. Today we part ways with Bay Alarm Medical after 5 and a half years. Thank you Bay Alarm Medical for your great staff and comfortable caring service even when I called to cancel service. Always professional and quality support! I will continue to recommend you to others and would quickly choose to start service again if the need should arrive again in our family.

Monitored in the USA for Maximum Reliability
A medical alert system is only as good as the 24/7 emergency call center that backs it up. Bay Alarm Medical works closely with our USA-based monitoring partner to create a network of highly reliable emergency response centers. Located in Ogden, Utah and Rexburg, Idaho, the two state-of-the-art centers are full duplicates of each other. If one station were to ever go offline, the other station would provide immediate emergency coverage.
Bay Alarm Medical provides consultation, technical support and customer service from our headquarters in California. We keep 24/7 medical monitoring completely separate from our day to day business operations to ensure that all emergency calls are rapidly responded to.
Certified & Rated #1 in America
Both 24/7 emergency medical monitoring centers are CSAA Five Diamond Certified and undergo a rigorous certification process annually, commit to tough quality standards, and agree to random inspections by UL, a nationally recognized testing laboratory.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are medical alert systems covered by Medicare?
Traditional Medicare doesn't cover medical alert systems, but some Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans and private insurers do. You may also be able to use your HSA or an employer plan to pay for your system. Learn more about Medicare and medical alert systems.
Do senior organizations recommend medical alert systems?
Senior organizations like AARP recommend medical alert systems because they help seniors stay safe and age in place at home. Some medical alert services offer AARP discounts or other special pricing options. Learn how to choose the best medical alert system for your needs.
Do I need a landline to use a medical alert system?
Traditional medical alert systems require a base station in the home connected to a landline. Cellular-based systems also work away from home, and there's no difference in performance if cellular coverage is strong where you are. Let us help you choose the medical alert system that works best for your budget and lifestyle.
Do I need WiFi to use a medical alert system?
Bay Alarm Medical's medical alert systems don't require wifi or an Internet connection. Users communicate directly with our trained operators via their landline or cellular connection.
