MIA Memberships

MEMBERSHIPS CAN BE PURCHASED ON THEIR OWN WITHOUT TRAVEL INSURANCE

MIA stands for Medical Information Anywhere and is a web based membership scheme, which allows the member to store, access and edit their medical, contact and personal information, at anytime from anywhere in the world.

Emergency ID CardIn addition it provides a free 24/7 assistance service who in an emergency can be contacted by the treating facility from the information contained on the ID Card and/or key ring attachment given to each membership, which shows the telephone number of the Emergency Assistance Team and the member’s membership number. After checks, life saving information stored by the member can be released, including contact numbers for consultants and family.

 

Information captured on MIA


Emergency

Including allergies, where blood products are stored, organ donor details etc.

Personal

Including identifying marks, languages spoken, Travel insurance details etc.

Emergency Contacts

Allows the member to capture next of kin contact details in case of emergency but also allows capture of Power of Attorney details etc.

Medication

Lists all medication taken, not only currently but previously and allows the input of over the counter medication. It also allows the member to place a note concerning adverse effects they may have encountered.

Medical History

Includes details of all pertinent illnesses including GP details and consultant’s details.

Family History

The capture of the medical history of your family provides the physician with an invaluable diagnostic tool and having it readily available avoids the stress should it prove necessary to provide it.

Vaccinations

This not only allows the member to record their vaccinations, it will remind them for boosters etc. Invaluable for families with young children or even for the pet lovers with new puppies!

Optical

This section not only allows you to capture your prescription details but explains all about the eye, giving diagrams, 20/20 vision and long and short sightedness. In the event of a loss, the member can either allow the optician to have access to their membership, or simply print off a copy to obtain a replacement pair avoiding the cost of an examination.

Dental

This allows the member to capture information about every tooth and the treatment received or to be received. Again in the spirit of providing our members with the ability to have knowledge and take control, there are diagrams explaining all about the tooth. In tragic emergency situations, this information can be used as an identification tool.

Prosthesis

This can be used to enter details including consultant contact details of anything from a false tooth to breast implant, false leg to pacemaker. Having all the information to hand could help avoid unnecessary invasive surgery when the member is away from their usual healthcare network.

Personal Documents

Members can capture such things as passport details (it also has a direct link into the lost passport department of the UK passport office), Driving licence details, car breakdown details and card protection plans etc.

Notes

This is purely for the members use and they can use it as they please. Capturing daily symptoms, following diets, copying names and addresses for postcards, capturing credit card numbers and the associated lost/stolen telephone number, copying a speech or other business information. In fact it can be used for anything, it is like having a notebook that you don’t have to remember to bring or worry about losing.

Many thanks for the copies you provided re our 2 holidays taken in September and October this year.
Until my husband, Trevor, was diagnosed with Mesothelioma earlier this year, I had never even heard of MIA. After he had his operation and got through radiotherapy and chemotherapy we were looking forward to getting away to our place in Portugal to resume life as it used to be I contacted a couple of Insurance companies who tutted and said they would get back to me or I needed to speak to a certain person and made me feel really awkward. I found talking about Trevors illness quite upsetting as it had hit us like a ton of bricks then I rang MIA.
What a breath of fresh air! You made me feel it was all quite normal and part of life and yes, the duration of the trip was covered as it was a Yes or No to answer. Plus the price was realistic and affordable.
We are so glad that we heard of your company, cannot speak highly enough of the service and will recommend you to anyone we know who has a medical condition.
Many many thanks for your excellent service and hope to be speaking to you in 2011.
Kind regards
