VA Eliminates Net Worth as Health Care Eligibility Factor


The Department of Veterans Affairs is updating the way it determines eligibility for VA health care, a change that will result in more Veterans having access to the health care benefits they've earned and deserve.

Indestructible USB Emergency IDs

In the past, the mail order and online engraved ID bracelet was consumers' only option. These old-fashioned IDs are limited to five lines of text and can't be updated to include new information as one travels or as medications change. EPIC-id is changing all of that. A streamlined, impact- and waterproof bracelet with a USB port, it saves and stores all of your pertinent statistics so that if something happens, EMTs, firefighters and first responders have all the information they need. EPIC-ids are reliable, comprehensive and self-contained, making them the future of the med-ID market.
