This is how World Medical Card works
World Medical Card is a personal emergency health card.
Should you require medical attention, no matter where you are in the world, health personnel can open your sealed emergency card and check your health profile. The card increases the chance that you will receive fast and accurate medical attention.
The card may contain information about:
- Medical conditions
- Emergency contacts
- Your insurance information
- Your organ donation status
Medical conditions and medications are listed in the card and are coded with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) international classification system, this way you are understood by health personnel all over the world.
World Medical Card is designed to have high visibility. We recommend that you keep the emergency card in your wallet at all times.
About World Medical Card®

You can enter other important information for you, such as lens type and strength, travel insurance certificate, photos of non-prescription medicines – so that you can buy the same abroad and anything else you think is important to you.

Register the name of your insurance company and the police number on “My page”, and this information will be printed on the outside of the card. The World Medical Card will then function as a combined health and insurance card and provide maximum travel security.
We recommend that you always keep your World Medical Card with your ID. The card is easily opened by tearing open the seal on the side of the card.
Inside the World Medical Card there is a unique password for emergency access to your profile.
