The BMW Motorcycle Owners of America is pleased to add another money-saving benefit for members. Emergency Contact Data, a provider of medical information in times of critical care, now offers MOA members 25% off the cost of service by using the promo code BMWMOA.

When you experience a sudden illness or are involved in a crash or other serious incident, medical personnel cannot get your medical records to help save your life. Emergency Contact Data solves this problem by displaying your personal, electronic medical records to first responders and medical personnel - even when you are unconscious.

The Emergency Contact Data Service can display your complete, personal Electronic Medical Record through a secure online platform and mobile app on your phone, including:

  • Medical alerts: rare blood type / medical condition
  • Your medications list
  • Your allergies
  • Recent test results that are critical to your health care
  • All your doctor’s names and their contact information
  • Your X-rays, EKGs, summary reports, etc.
  • Your photo ID and insurance information

After enrolling with Emergency Contact Data, enter your information in your online profile. Emergency Contact Data does not ask for any personal identifiers, does not store credit card data and information is encrypted in transit. In the event of an accident or illness, links on the ECD identification card and keychain tag direct first responders and medical personnel to the Emergency Contact Data website for immediate access to medical records.

Emergency Contact Data has a mobile app which allows medical personnel to have your medical records right at their fingertips. They simply touch the Emergency Contact Data icon and your comprehensive medical records will be displayed on your phone or tablet within five seconds, regardless of internet access. Search for Emergency Contact Data in the Apple Store or Android Play Store to download the free app.

 

The standard cost for service is $19.95 per year, but BMW MOA members pay only $14.95 per year for this coverage. Members can find more information and enroll online at emergencycontactdata.com. Be sure to enter the promo code BMWMOA to receive the discounted price.

How does EMergency contact data protect against identity theft?

ECD does not ask its members for, nor does it store the most sought-after personal identifiers such as:

  • Specific date of birth (“Year of birth” is required as your age can be important to your medical treatment.)
  • Driver's license number
  • Social Security number
  • Credit card numbers

The primary reason cyber criminals access an online medical account is to steal a person's identity. ECD has eliminated the content that leads to identity theft. ECD also provides the option for members to exclude their physical address from the profile information that First Responders see. This feature is for those that do not wish to divulge this information about themselves and/or their children.

 

Does ECD have international support for non-U.S. members?

Yes, currently our sign-up forms and all of our Member Profile forms are formatted according the country you select upon becoming a ECD member.
