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.
