Medical IDs are the first line of defense in an emergency. More than 95 percent of emergency responders look for a medical ID upon assessing a patient.

Medical IDs also provide more appropriate and cost effective care.  We recently conducted an online survey of nearly 9,000 of our customers and discovered:

  • 15 percent experienced a medical emergency in the workplace as a result of their condition
  • Of those, more than 60 percent had to be taken to the emergency room
  • Those not wearing a medical ID were 44 percent more likely to require a trip to the emergency room
  • The average hospital bill for those wearing a medical ID was $3,753
  • The average hospital bill for those not wearing a medical ID was $26, 395

Medical IDs ensure prompt medical care and can ultimately save lives!
