According to reports, the monthly rental fee of a LifeVest is $3,300, but some representatives said that the cost varies depending on insurance providers. The device is covered by most health plans in the United States.
The LifeVest wearable defibrillator is the first and only wearable defibrillator for patients at high risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
According to Zoll, the LifeVest wearable defibrillator is worn by patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), providing protection during their changing condition and while permanent SCA risk has not been established, it allows a patient’s physician time to evaluate their long-term arrhythmic risk and make appropriate plans.
The LifeVest is lightweight and easy to wear, allowing patients to return to their activities of daily living, while having the peace of mind that they are protected from SCA. It continuously monitors the patient’s heart and, if a life-threatening heart rhythm is detected, the device delivers a treatment shock to restore normal heart rhythm.
The product is also used for a wide range of patient conditions or situations, including following a heart attack, before or after bypass surgery or stent placement, as well as for those with cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure that places them at particular risk.

The only barrier between life and death in the last three incidents, Magyar is convinced, was a lightweight wearable defibrillator called the LifeVest. Read more at USA Today.
