Medical Conditions that Require a Medical ID
Physicians and healthcare organizations around the world recommend medical IDs for people living with one or more medical conditions. Wearing a medical ID at all times offers peace of mind and reassurance that in an emergency, responders are alerted to your medical condition or history.
95% of emergency responders check for medical identification around the wrist and/or neck. A person's medical condition is one of the most vital pieces of information required for immediate and accurate treatment. Wearing a medical ID can help prevent misdiagnosis, unwanted drug interaction, and treatments that can pose risk to a patient’s medical condition.
Check the table below to see if you have any one of these medical conditions. If the answer is yes, we hope that you choose the right medical ID for your safety, well-being and peace of mind.
