In brief: Yes, but...
They are not usually covered by any insurance plans.
They will cost anywhere from $800 to $1200 if you decide to purchase one. I advise that anyone who purchases one take a CPR class with instruction on using an aed. If you have to use one skill, you will probably have to use the other. Good luck!

Research suggests that AED's may not help, as people may need them when others are asleep. Implantable, or potentially wearable, defibrillators, is the only effective prevention in the home.
