According to the CDC, one in four older adults experiences a fall annually, making it the leading cause of injuries and fatalities in this age group. A reliable medical alert system is a crucial asset, offering assurance and the knowledge that prompt assistance is readily accessible during moments of need. A simple button press empowers users to request help for medical concerns and emergencies swiftly.
In our commitment to supporting veterans, we have created a guide that provides a thorough overview of medical alert systems available through the Department of Veterans Affairs. It outlines the eligibility criteria for these systems and concurrently offers insights into alternative avenues to acquire a medical alert system if the VA's specified requirements are not met. Also included is a comprehensive list of Medicaid waiver programs that may cover the expenses associated with obtaining a medical alert system.
We recently updated our Mesothelioma and Veterans Guide. This free resource highlights:

• Veterans and Asbestos Exposure
• Filing a VA Claim
• Cancer Treatment for Veterans
• Types of Veterans Benefits
Our mission is to assist veterans with the array of issues they may face, including obtaining proper disability compensation, financial assistance, information on the GI bill, and more. We have created some helpful guides and will continuously be adding more. Recently we also made a calculator that helps veterans calculate how much their VA rating should be, especially when it comes to combining ratings and complicated VA math. Check it out:
