Client Enrollment Options

null

OPTION 1: Agency Purchases the Equipment

Direct enrollment through the local PLS member agency is the first choice. The PLS agency will assign a transmitter to the client, and the PLS agency will monitor and perform transmitter maintenance. Agencies are solely responsible for all financial transactions with PLI for all aspects of the program.

OPTION 2: Client Leases the Equipment from PLI

The second enrollment option allows caregivers to lease a transmitter directly from Project Lifesaver International Operations. When an agency enrolls a client under Option 2, the caregiver pays the lease and maintenance costs directly to PLI Operations. The PLS member agency will receive equipment from PLI Operations for placement with the client. The PLS agency will perform battery changes and periodic maintenance.  Information will be relayed to the local PLS member agency for entry into the PLS database.

OPTION 3: Client Leases the Equipment from PLI

The third enrollment option also allows caregivers to lease a transmitter directly from PLI Operations. When an agency enrolls a client under Option 3, the caregiver pays the lease and maintenance costs directly to PLI Operations. Option 3 allows the caregiver to receive the equipment from PLI operations for placement.  The caregiver will perform battery changes and periodic maintenance.  Information will be relayed to the local PLS member agency for entry into the PLI database.

Option 2 and Option 3 are lease options that allow PLS agencies flexibility for those circumstances when direct enrollment is not available or when funding is limited.
