People with autism can be particularly vulnerable in emergency situations. When communication is hindered, emergency situations can escalate quickly.

That’s why MedicAlert is proud to partner with Autism Canada, a leading advocate for those with autism and their families, to help keep you or your loved one safe in an emergency situation. A MedicAlert ID can be the difference between a tragedy and a happy ending.

The new MedicAlert Autism Program includes one year of MedicAlert protection, a free ID and shoe tag, plus complimentary shipping and registration, at a cost of only $60 to new subscribers.

Autism isn’t always recognizable to those who don’t know the signs.With MedicAlert protection, there’s an effective way to identify the subscriber, understand how to de-escalate a potentially volatile situation or reunite a lost subscriber with family or caregivers.

Here’s how the program can help.

If you or your loved one is in an emergency situation, it may not be possible to communicate effectively with emergency responders. The MedicAlert Autism Program is designed to empower emergency responders and police to provide you or your loved one with timely and customized care. Here’s how:

A MedicAlert ID is your voice in an emergency

Emergency responders and police know to look for the authentic MedicAlert ID. If an individual with autism is unable to communicate, the MedicAlert ID tells emergency responders and police about their condition and empowers emergency response teams to make informed decisions.

Comprehensive medical profile on file

We securely store subscribers’ electronic medical and personal profiles on file and make them available to emergency responders and police within seconds. This profile can include everything from known routines, anxiety triggers, and de-escalation techniques to other medical conditions such as allergies.

24/7 Emergency Hotline

Emergency situations can happen any time, day or night. Our exclusive 24/7 Emergency Hotline ensures that emergency responders and police will be able to access vital personal information around the clock.

Family Notification Service

Individuals with autism may be distressed by new surroundings and people. The exclusive Family Notification Service quickly notifies caregivers and family to let them know the situation and whereabouts of the subscriber, reducing stress for everyone.

For safety and peace of mind, sign up today.

Protection is only $60 a year. For new subscribers, the MedicAlert Autism Program includes:

  • One year of MedicAlert service
