Veterans Receive a Free Medical ID
Did you know? It is Veterans Health Administration (VHA) policy that medical ID bracelets and pendants must be available for veteran patients – free of charge.
American Medical ID supports this directive and is actively spreading information on how our veterans can rightfully claim this benefit:
Steps to Your Free Veterans Medical ID:
VA Information Sheet
Download and print the VA information sheet to bring to your clinician (Physician, PA or NP).
Choosing Your ID
Preview the available medical ID styles on the information sheet and inform your clinician of your preferred item.
Selecting Your Engraving Information
Visit your clinician and discuss what is important to engrave on your medical ID bracelet or pendant.
Processing Your Order
The clinician you visit will process your order with a Purchasing Agent in the Prosthetics Department. Note: Your medical ID will ship to your home once the order is complete.
American Medical ID has contract V797P-2296D with the Federal Supply Schedule to make custom engraved medical IDs available for veterans.
Medical IDs are important especially for veterans who are living with chronic conditions or suffer from injuries. In the event of an emergency, wearing a medical ID bracelet or pendant allows responders and health care professionals to provide the best care our veterans deserve. For veterans and their families, having a medical ID allows them to enjoy and live life with peace of mind.

Please help spread the word to your fellow veterans about this offer.
