Where Do You Get A Medical Alert Necklace/Bracelet?

New postby Carmelina » 27 Oct 2012, 19:19

My mom tells me that I have to get one now that I've turned 18 & am going to college soon or whatever. I prefer a necklace because the bracelet seems too geriatric for me. Oh and it is for asthma. kthanks.

Go to your neighborhood pharmacy. On the counter you will find brochures for medical alert tags / bracelets.

Choose a company that will put your info into a national data base, and keep it available to medical personnel in case you are ever in a position of needing medical care and cannot speak for yourself.

Always carry an ID card that states you are wearing a pacemaker or an ICD. In addition, you should wear a medical identification bracelet that states you have a pacemaker or ICD. You should ask your Doctor for specifics on what to put on your medical alert necklace.

There is a wealth of information on this website. If you scroll down to the bottom you will see all the precautions and a large list of other sites that may be helpful to you.

If you think you should be wearing medical identification stating your medications, wear one. Even a tag with the names of your medications but no hotline [such as the one provided with MedicAlert membership] could be helpful to doctors or paramdeics in an emergency.

Unfortunately they will not pay for that my dear. I have MS and had asked them if they would pay for the bracelet and they said Medicaid does not pay for that as it is not a prescription. Sorry to hear about your son, I hope he will be okay. I had to order an id bracelet through the mail and it cost me $30.00 for a silver/metal bracelet, the gold cost more. If you have a local supermarker that has a pharmacy, they should have some of those placecards with the bracelets/neclases on display for you to take home. Good luck.
