Various funding options are available to help you pay for your Tunstall medical alarm. Many of our clients are often eligible to receive government assistance. Our standard package may be subsidised through Work & Income, Veterans Affairs, or the Accident Compensation Corporation.
DO YOU ALREADY RECEIVE THE DISABILITY ALLOWANCE?Disability allowance can be paid to cover the costs of medical alarm rental and monitoring if:
- a medical alarm is necessary for normal daily living, without it the person’s life or health would be put at risk, or their disability would be aggravated
- the need for the alarm is an ongoing, additional cost directly related to the person’s disability or personal health need
- the medical alarm is approved and supplied by an approved medical alarm company
To receive assistance through the disability allowance, an application must be made to Work and Income.
