Through proper clinician recommendation, there is a VA benefit for veteran patients that may qualify them for a personalized medical ID bracelet or pendant from the Prosthetics Department.

We believe everyone who needs a medical ID should have one. For veterans, wearing a medical ID is probably the last thing they think about. But being easily identified as having a medical condition can be very important, especially for veterans who have chronic conditions or suffer from injuries like embedded metal fragments.
