Keeping You Safe is Our Prioirty

Welcome CareFirst® BlueCross® BlueShield® Members

American Medical ID is pleased to announce our partnership with CareFirst® BlueCross® BlueShield®. Together we aim to increase awareness of the importance of medical IDs and promote their use for those living with chronic or rare medical conditions or allergies.

Why is a Medical ID important?

Doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals recommend wearing a medical ID bracelet or medical alert necklace for those who have chronic conditions.

In an emergency situation, when you might not be able to speak for yourself, a medical ID bracelet or necklace speaks for you. A medical ID can quickly communicate your name, condition, allergies, and medications. Often people choose to also include an emergency contact and telephone number so that a loved one quickly knows what is happening and where they need to be.

Medical IDs Save Lives

Symptoms of common ailments can easily be misdiagnosed. Prompt diagnosis is critical to effective treatment. A brief description of vital medical facts engraved on your medical ID ensures appropriate and timely medical care. More than 95 percent of emergency responders look for a medical ID; more than 75 percent check for a medical ID immediately upon assessing the patient. Wearing a medical ID can improve your chances of receiving proper care in an emergency.
