The Good

  • Technology
  • No activation fee or service contract
  • Customer service

MedScope offers their customers the latest technology. The devices work with landlines, phones with DSL connections, cellular phones and VOIP phones, offering peace of mind for their customers and their families.

New MedScope customers are not charged an activation fee and there is never a service contract, meaning that customers pay for their services month-to-month and can cancel at any time without penalty. TO add another person onto the account, there is no fee.

MedScope also has an optional fall detection feature, meaning that the device alerts the medical alert team should a fall be detected. Emergency personnel are contacted as well as a designated friend or family member.

Their customer service is exemplary and agents are available to answer any and all questions between 9AM and 5PM (eastern time) Monday – Friday. Should customers need assistance after hours, technical support is available 24/7. Customers simply leave messages and are called back within a few minutes.

The Bad

  • Prices
  • Not geared towards individual customers

MedScope’s prices are slightly higher than their competitors. Some features are add-ons, such as fall detection which is an additional $5/month.

The company’s main focus is selling and servicing large companies, such as nursing homes. As such, finding information for individual customers can be slightly problematic. However, with a few clicks, one can access customer service and sales’ information.

The Bottom Line

MedScope is a recommended company for one’s medical alerting needs. They offer many features as standard in their packages as well as add-ons or upgrades, such as fall alerts monitored medication dispenser and cellular and mobile medical alerts.

Their customer service agents are only available during regular business hours on the east coast, but technical support agents are available around the clock. Agents are friendly and knowledgeable when fielding questions about individual service plans and equipment, in spite of the main focus of the company’s sales being to institutions.

MedScope allows multiple family members to be on the same account (which is not always the case in the industry) for no additional monthly charge. They do charge for an additional pendant, however. Terms of service for MedScope are extremely simple and fair, with no activation fee, free shipping on equipment rental, and no long-term contract.

One can be confident in selecting MedScope for their medical alerting needs.

    It seems to be working. I wasn’t totally satisfied with them because they seemed to be pushing towards me having this and they got the okay from my doctor.

    I live alone and my walking is getting a little unstable, so I thought it was a good idea to purchase Mobile Help. I am very satisfied with their services because I don’t have to worry about being alone or falling without being able to get up. The service is great, although the necklace is a little touchy but other than that, it’s fine.
