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, PTSD 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.
