Funding for St John Medical Alarms

The most common sources of funding for a St John Medical Alarm are:

  • The Ministry of Social Development, through Work and Income. The Disability Allowance provides financial assistance for those with a physical disability or health condition that puts them at risk. 

    If you already receive the Disability Allowance and want to apply for financial assistance for a medical alarm, you’ll need to see your doctor and provide paperwork to Work and Income.  

  • ACC sometimes covers the cost of medical alarm services for patients recovering from accidents.  You can discuss this further with your ACC Case Manager.

Contact Work and Income or ACC directly to find out more information.
