Medical Alert Support
If you or someone who lives with you is dependent on electrically operated life-support equipment, you may apply for special consideration in case of interruption of service. If you provide us with a statement from your doctor and the company supplying the equipment, you will be given priority in the service restoration. We cannot guarantee uninterrupted service, nor can we always predict how long an outage will last, but we will make every attempt to restore service as soon as possible. Please print and fill out the medical alert form below, and fax it or bring it to our Customer Service Department along with a statement from your doctor and the company supplying the equipment.
If approved, Medical Alert will remain active on your account for one (1) year. At that time, if it still applies, please submit a new medical application for consideration. For more information call (856) 794-4021.
