Welcome to the year 2018, when choosing a medical alert ID is like choosing a paint swatch from your hardware store. There are SO many options!

Paint swatches and Jett

Gone are the days of the one-company, mail order ID’s where you have 5 options that all looks like something you would never wear in a million years and yet all seem to cost over $100 before the engraving process.

There is now something for everyone! Every style, every budget. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites to help you on your search for your perfect Medical Alert ID.


Medical Alert ID by Style


athletic medical alert id for your style roadID

RoadID makes, in my opinion, THE BEST, medical alert ID’s around. They are durable, affordable, have great customer service, and SO many style options. This stretch style (formerly slimID) is my favorite. It can get wet, dirty, pulled & stretched, and it doesn’t ruin it.

Read the blog post I made about my review of the Stretch Style RoadID here.

Is glam more your style? Check out this beautiful rose gold medical ID wrist cuff from Lauren’s Hope Medical ID Jewelry.  Engraving would be on the inside of cuff, so it’s discrete and not in your face, yet still effective and noticeable as a medical alert ID to paramedics because of the iconic medical ID logo on the tail.

How about this beautifully hand-crafted leather & gemstone medical alert ID from Etsy. The stainless steel Medical ID tag is ready for engraving (note, the seller does not engrave so you would have to take it to a jewelry store for engraving).

Or maybe classic is more your style. This traditional medical alert ID from American Medical ID, is beautiful & timeless and allows up to 4 lines of custom engravement!

    Great finds! I definitely have more of an edgy style so I am loving that black leather stacked bracelet. Also really love the idea of a medical alert tattoo.
