PLS member agencies are the best source for information regarding program choices in your area.
CHOICE 1: TRANSMITTER OPTIONS PROGRAM
Many PLS member agencies offer enrollment options to their clients.
OPTION 1:The first enrollment option is to enroll directly through the local PLSmember agency. 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. Direct enrollment costs vary from agency to agency; therefore, we encourage caregivers to contact their PLS agency directly for more information.
Some PLS member agencies may choose to enroll clients under Option 2 or Option 3. These options allow PLS agencies flexibility for those circumstances when direct enrollment is not available.
OPTION 2: 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 maintenances costs directly to PLI Operations. The PLS member agency with which the client is enrolled will receive equipment from PLI Operations for placement. 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: The third enrollment option allows caregivers to lease a transmitter directly from Project Lifesaver International Operations. When an agency enrolls a client under Option 3, the caregiver pays the lease and maintenance costs directly to PLI Operations. The caregiver will 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.
PLI Operations offers a choice of payment arrangements for caregivers using Option 2 or Option 3. Leases may be automatically renewed for continued peace of mind.
PLS member agencies can mix and match these options to create customized plans for their clients as well as to comply with the guidelines of their local jurisdictions.
