A medical ID is a wearable accessory that contains critical personal and medical information. Individuals with medical conditions, food and drug allergies, or those taking medications should wear one. First responders and medical personnel are trained to look for these IDs when encountering patients who are unable to respond. Providing this information can prevent misdiagnosis, unwanted drug reactions, and treatments that could impose serious risk.

Light is a symbol of life, happiness, prosperity, and, in a wider sense, of perfect being. It is immortality - without light, there would be no life. Light is wisdom, divinity, hope, good, and truth, which shows how central it is to our everyday life. At tag4life, we shine a powerful light on medically vulnerable people who, for whatever reason, can't speak for themselves. We do this by helping to cover the cost of their medical IDs - no questions asked.
"Fundamentally, I did not understand the real necessity for such a device until there were discussions within my transplant support group. The importance of having my medical information readily available (from the point of view of a first-responder or within the ER) was not emphasized nearly enough during the pre- or post-transplant educational process."

“As a Trauma/ER Nurse for many years, I relied heavily on my patients’ medical ID devices to help with understanding their needs when injured and unable to communicate, a point in time when every second mattered. As a twice transplanted patient myself, I can’t imagine not having and wearing one. It helps others to help us when we need it the most.“

Every person involved in the administration and marketing of our services is a solid organ transplant recipient or associated medical professional. We all know how important it is to have easy access to our crucial medical data, even if we're unable to speak or move. Millions of lives have been saved by these devices, and we are eager to do our part. For us, it's personal.
We only welcome partners and vendors who adhere to our rigorous Code of Conduct, whereby they provide access to the medically vulnerable and/or only the highest quality medical ID devices. We get unique, vendor-specific coupon codes, available only to our customers. These codes entitle you to a discount of up to $50 on your first such ID, which we pay for out of donated funds.
While providing medical IDs to the medically vulnerable is our reason for being, we also recognize that not everyone who needs an ID understands all of the what/where/ when/how and especially the why. So, while we continue to diligently work on helping to pay for medical IDs, we also provide unbiased education about these products and ser
While providing medical IDs to the medically vulnerable is our reason for being, we also recognize that not everyone who needs an ID understands all of the what/where/ when/how and especially the why. So, while we continue to diligently work on helping to pay for medical IDs, we also provide unbiased education about these products and services, letting our stakeholders know why they're so important.
We focus on one thing - making sure that price, lack of convenience, or a misunderstanding of why these items are so important aren't what stop someone from having a medical ID if they need it. Two out of three people who need such a device don't have one, and that's unacceptable to us. So all we do is pay for them - no questions asked. Our mission is saving one life - yours.
