Your DocuBank Card can now hold your medical snapshot....

As a client of our firm, you received a DocuBank Emergency Card when you completed your estate plan. We gave you this emergency access service to protect you so that doctors can always get your important “advance directive” wishes that you put in place (your healthcare power of attorney, living will).

DocuBank has added a new feature to the Card that we want to bring to your attention. 

This feature, called My MEDICAL SNAPSHOT, lets you share your important medical story with ERs, hospitals and doctors when they ask for it (and they will). The critical medical information you can share includes your Surgeries & Hospitalizations, Medical Conditions and History, Allergies, Family History and full list of Specialists, in addition to the Medication List that has already been available.

It seems clear that the more medical information doctors have about us, the better the care we have an opportunity to receive. This My MEDICAL SNAPSHOT tool may be especially helpful for the many of us (and our family members!) who find it challenging to remember our entire medical story.  

My MEDICAL SNAPSHOT is available to DocuBank cardholders who have a “COMPLETE” level membership.  If you’re still in your initial membership term through our firm, you have a COMPLETE membership. If you renewed your membership at DocuBank’s “BASIC” level (as opposed to “COMPLETE”) and would like to use My Medical SNAPSHOT, you can contact DocuBank about upgrading your membership for free until October 1st at

If you have questions about this new benefit, please contact DocuBank directly at (toll-free) 1- 866-362-8226. They have real people available to answer your questions from 9 am to 5 pm Eastern time.
