The MS Society is happy to announce a partnership with MedicAlert Foundation Canada. MedicAlert is a service that provides ID bracelets that alert emergency responders to a person’s cognitive or medical condition. Some information is printed on the bracelet, however there is also a 24/7 hotline they can call for detailed medical information on the individual. This allows responders to treat an individual efficiently and accurately based on their unique medical needs.

“I first got my Medicalert bracelet because of my type 2 diabetes. Then when I was diagnosed with MS, I had it updated with my long list of medicines and other medical issues. It gives me peace of mind to know that if I’m unable to communicate to an emergency responder, they can get immediate access to my healthcare information. It is a small price to pay for that kind of comfort.” - Donalda Martin-Gagnon, MS Advocate & Volunteer, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

The MS Society partnership with MedicAlert offers a special benefit for individuals affected by MS and their families. By calling the dedicated phone line at MedicAlert, individuals will receive the following:

  • A free basic MedicAlert ID bracelet (retail cost is $39) or they can upgrade to a different piece of hardware and have that $39.00 dollars as a credit towards their upgraded ID.
  • 20% off their yearly subscription which would come to a total of $48.00 a year for the service.
