Your Information – Source of Truth

The information engraved on your MedicAlert® ID and in your Electronic File comes from the most trusted and reliable source, Your Doctors, Specialist and Nurses that know you, and your particular requirements.

Your Access – IT systems and our staff.

Each MedicAlert® member has access to their information from the Website, simply login. And as we join with new providers, you will have access to a portal that can connect you with your doctors. We also have a dedicated team to answer your calls during business hours and an after-hours call centre also.

Your Charity – Our Beginnings

Founded by Dr Marion Collins in 1956 and established in New Zealand in 1962, MedicAlert® has been saving lives for over 50 years internationally. Emergency Responders and Clinicians needed a simple way to get more information about you, that's why they check for the trusted, body worn MedicAlert® Emblem.

With you on board, we are joining together to support our community of members who have similar day to day problems associated with protecting our personal health and welfare.

When you contribute to the Foundation be it through donating your time and skills, or through payments and donations. You are adding value to the Foundation and strengthening its ability to support you and the wider Foundation family to build awareness and help prevent avoidable harm from occurring.
