Medical IDs are a critical tool to ensuring proper diagnosis and treatment for Veterans living with chronic medical conditions or those who suffer from injuries. In accordance, VA policy states that a custom engraved medical ID bracelet, pendant or dog tag will be provided for qualifying Veteran patients. American Medical ID supports this initiative and is actively working with the VA to fulfill these orders.
