What is Lifeline?

Lifeline provides solutions for aging in place. As a Humana member, you may be eligible to receive the Lifeline medical alert service. We founded the medical alert service industry 45 years ago and we are still the leading medical alert service in the U.S. today**. Dependability is key to peace of mind. That’s why doctors, hospitals, and professional caregivers trust our medical alert system.

How Does the Lifeline Service Work?

Lifeline offers you quick access to help when you need it. With a press of your button, or upon fall detection*, our Trained Care Specialists will access your profile, assess your situation and dispatch the help you need. And you can choose who is called to help you – it can be a neighbor, friend, family member or emergency services. Getting up and getting help quickly are crucial to staying healthy and reducing unnecessary medical costs.

Based on your situation and your personal care plan, we will contact a neighbor, loved one or emergency services and follow up to confirm help has arrived.

You can sign up for your Humana Medicare Advantage plan benefit starting Jan. 1. Click here to check your eligibility and to enroll in the Lifeline medical alert service. Have your Humana member card on hand.

The Self Service Enrollment portal is currently available for the Chrome, Internet Explorer (Windows 10) and Edge (Windows 10) browsers and there is limited support for mobile devices. If you do not have access to a supported browser, please call 1-855-569-0605 (TTY: 711) to confirm your eligibility and sign up for Lifeline.

At-Home Medical Alert Systems from Lifeline

We offer solutions that help you maintain your independence in and around your home. HomeSafe medical alert systems come standard with a landline in-home communicator, which acts as a speaker for two-way communication with the Lifeline Response Center. The help button is lightweight and waterproof* so it’s safe to wear in the bath or the shower. It can be discreetly worn inside or outside your clothing. A cellular in-home communicator is available for members who do not have a landline.*

Press your help button anytime you need help, day or night. The HomeSafe medical alert system gives you fast access to a Trained Care Specialist who will dispatch the help you need. Select from either a pendant-style or a wristband.

On the Go

Members who have a history, fear or risk of falling should consider the AutoAlert option*, which has all of the advantages of HomeSafe, with the added feature of automatic fall detection. If you are disoriented, immobilized or unconscious and can’t press the help button on your pendant worn around your neck, AutoAlert automatically detects your fall and promptly calls for help. It is designed to distinguish between actual falls and everyday activities.
