Details about the EMC can be found here:

EMC Information

Anything may be engraved on your medical jewelry provided that space allows. The order of our suggested engraving format would be:

1) First and Last Name

2) Date of Birth (DOB)

3) Medical Conditions

4) Life Threatening Medications (i.e. blood thinners)

5) Allergic to: _____________

6) Emergency Contacts (ICE: name, phone)

When placing your order our Engraving Preview tool will show you how your engraved message will appear on your medical jewelry.

Engraving your name on your medical ID is a personal preference but we recommend that at least your first name is included. In an emergency, emergency responders will say a person’s name to get their attention and check for responsiveness. We recommend that all Alzheimer’s, Dementia and other mentally compromised patients engrave their name and address or contact information of a friend, caregiver or family member.

List only those medical conditions that would be important in an emergency. For example, a minor surgery that took place several years ago may no longer be relevant to your current medical care.

List only medicines you wish to be engraved. Generally, this would be prescription medicine, taken on a long-term daily basis which are unlikely to change. You may wish to list the most important medicines first.

List only those allergies which are severe and can cause a life threatening event.

Space is limited, so summarize your information with short, descriptive words. We provide Emergency Medical Cards with every purchase that can include as much detail as you would like.

    ELIANA

    Love it. Far better than the cheap one we got from the American Liver Foundation when my husband got his transplant. That chain and fob made his neck turn green. This all stainless is much better. And you definitely want to get the rubber surrounds. Edges kind of sharp without it.

    The picture doesn’t do it justice, it is much nicer than the picture. The customer service kept in constant contact, which is kind of rare. The tag arrived sooner than expected. Th only thing I would have done different was to write a couple of rough drafts on what I wanted it to say.

    Clear engraving, sharp edge

    Gayle W.

    The engraving is clear and the item arrived quickly. However, it has a sharp edge which is the reason for the 3 star rating. We were able to smooth it out with a metal file, but if you’re not handy or don’t have one you’ll probably want to get a silencer for it.

    This did exactly what I wanted it to do. I am in my eighties with some significant health issues. This tag documents what people should know about me in case of an accident. At first I thought the engraving was on the cheesy side; but after I realized that it was laser-engraved, I felt better about it. I would recommend it

    Must have for loved ones and others in your care

    Jasmine M.

    This is a great item for anyone with a chronic condition. In our case, my husband has a heart condition and dementia. There is plenty of room on the front and back for an emergency contact and PCP (doctor) information. The ball chain is not flimsy and the metal used is stainless steel so the risk of loss, damage or an allergic reaction is minimal. You can use the small contact information/prescription card for a wallet or purse. There is plenty of information to scribe prescriptions and full details on this card; we are up to about 10 and there was still room. NOTE: if you are going to write on the card, don’t use gel pen ink; it will smear. The tag information is engraved deep in the metal so there is no need to worry that the information will scratch off or will wear off during the wearer’s lifetime. If you are hesitating over the price, don’t. In this case, you will get what you pay for. A word about the seller – excellent service. As soon as I placed the order, I got an email with a form to fill out (all electronic) and to specify back and front information. I put my name, relationship and contact information along with the husband’s name. On the back, I put our PCP doctor, his contact information and his diagnosis information with a note to contact the PCP for full diagnosis and prescription information. They will help with information and suggestions. The tags arrived with no errors and BEFORE the projected date. Cannot recommend these enough.

    When I need to revise my tags, I'm coming right back here, without even looking at anything else.

    Hannah A.

    Had a slight “dimple” in one corner when it arrived, and they immediately said they’d ship a whole new tag, which they did and they did ship it immediately. That’s outstanding customer service. The engraving is also perfect, and the black filling has been done perfectly. I wish they would offer a “Cuban” 3mm flat stainless link chain, like the really old MedicAlert tags used to come with, but everyone uses these bulkier stainless bead chains these days. (You can find the “Cuban” flat stainless ones from MedicAlert or on eBay about $11 for 30″. Or $30 at a flea market., ouch.) If you do try to put the tag on a stainless chain, you may also need to enlarge to hanging-hole, in order to make room for the attaching loop to clear the chain. But everyone swears these “light shade pull chains” really are strong, I may just be out of touch on that. I like my old chain, and I think UMD offers an excellent product, excellent service, and way less hassle than “genuine” MedicAlert, who will argue with you over what you want engraved on the tag. And only engrave half as much.

    I bought this same necklace about 2 months ago. It was PERFECT. The writing was large, clear, bold, and easy to read. I had some changes in my medical condition and decided to purchase a new necklace. The new necklace arrived today and the writing is tiny and very light. I can barely read what it says. I have no idea why since I used less than 22 characters on each line (most lines only had 17 or 18 characters). I will definitely not be using this because I don’t feel that emergency responders could read it. I can’t even read it. Very disappointing – especially since my last necklace was so great.

    My partner got this as a gift for me! It’s perfect, it’s a very basic dog tag that has a large font to grab attention when needed. The medical card to fill out goes into your wallet and is a nice simple plus. I don’t know about the other review, but I’ve *never* seen any medic alert dog tag style necklace have your wallet information on the chain, so this is exactly what I expected!

    Rachel G.

    This is an absolute great product. I looked at several medical id manufacturers, and This is the one I chose to try and I am very glad I did. First of all, the amount of information that is on the tag, is twice the amount of what is offered by competitors. The engraving is very easy to see and read, even if you have less than perfect eyesight. And the tag feels like good quality metal, not just some thin scrap. I am very pleased to say the least, and will definitely use this company again, and would highly recommend them to others.

    I ordered this because I had a spinal stimulator implanted and can no longer have MRIs. The dog tag is great and allows plenty of room for several lines of printing front and back. The description states the chain is stainless steel, but after 2 months the finish has worn off the chain and I have not worn it in the shower.

    I have wore my necklace about 3 weeks and no alergic reaction to any part of it. The bigger size worked for me because I have many alergies and conditions. They printed up exactly what I entered. Even the spelling mistakes I made:) I also liked I could open up the chain so I slipped my cross on as well. I also like that they were made locally in MIN. (I believe).

    Bought this for my grandson who was just diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes. From the look of the picture and description of the product, I thought the medical card was attached to the chain or the dog tag. The information card is a great idea, but since he doesn’t carry a wallet on him he might forget to put it in his pocket every morning when he goes to school or sports. I even talked to an EMT who told me what a great idea to have the medical information attached to the dog tags. Very disappointed right now.
