SafetyCare named an official Medicaid provider of personal emergency response systems

Apr 09, 2013

SafetyCare Technologies Inc., a leading innovator in the monitoring and manufacturing of personal emergency response systems, announced its approval as a Medicaid PERS provider in all counties in Delaware for qualified seniors. SafetyCare is the only company with unique monitoring services provided exclusively by certified emergency medical technicians, not operators, to ensure access to professional emergency help when callers need it most.

These systems are ideal for seniors or disabled persons wanting to remain independent in the comforts of their own home. Through SafetyCare’s technology, these individuals can have safety and security at home, 24 hours a day, with access to a certified EMT through the press of a button.

The wireless device, in the form of a bracelet or pendant, alerts the SafetyCare Response Center of a potential medical or security risk in the home. SafetyCare’s life and safety EMTs can then provide assistance to the customer until emergency personnel arrive on the scene.

Through SafetyCare, the client or a loved one can access help immediately and continue living life normally at home.

Medicaid and CHIP provide health coverage to nearly 60 million Americans, including children, pregnant women, parents, seniors and individuals with disabilities. In order to participate in Medicaid, federal law requires states to cover certain population groups (mandatory eligibility groups) and gives them the flexibility to cover other population groups (optional eligibility groups).

States set individual eligibility criteria within federal minimum standards.

States can apply to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for a waiver of federal law to expand health coverage beyond these groups. For more information, contact the Delaware Department of Human Resources.
