How Do I Return My Medical Alert System?



Medical Care Alert’s main focus is senior safety. We believe that we provide one of the best emergency alert systems for seniors and disabled people. We take pride in our service and want to ensure that all our customers are happy. If for any reason you would like to return the system, we make sure that this process is hassle-free when you first got your system. We aim to ensure that your cancellation request and any refunds due are completed in a timely fashion. Just follow these steps to return your personal alarm for seniors.

Here is our process to return your medical alert system to us - its quick and easy.

Monitoring Agent1) First, click here to send us an email to our Customer Care Team. Please include the account number that is located on the top of your medical alert system. Or, you can call us at 1-248-946-8172.
2) Tell us the reason for returning the unit, and if you are canceling your service.
3) Customer Care will give you a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number, and instructions on how to ship the system back to us.
4) If you are canceling service with us, we will stop the billing and monitoring on your account as soon as we receive the equipment back from you.
5) Once we receive your returned system, any pre-paid balance on your account will be pro-rated for a refund, less any deductions (i.e. lost/damaged items, company paid shipping, reprogramming fee for unused systems etc.). Refunds take three to four weeks for processing and crediting back to your form of payment on file (see full policy below to see how we calculate any refund due back to you).

Here is what needs to be returned to us:

- Medical Alert console / speakerphone unit
- All Medical Alert Buttons, along with lanyards, belt clips etc
- All power cords, phone cords, DSL filter, phone line splitter ("T-Adapter")
- Lockbox (if we sent you one)
- All in the original box (we asked you to keep this box. If you don't have it, please have the medical alert system packaged so that it does not get damaged in shipping.). NOTE - the original box is not designed for shipping. We recommend USPS Priority Mail boxes for returns - it fits perfectly and is economical. These boxes are free at any US Post Office, and they charge a flat rate which is generally the cheapest way to go.

Please contact Customer Care at 1-248-946-8172 for more information on returning an item or your full medical alert system. Thank you.
