Medical Information and Access Card™ (MIAC)
The Medical Information and Access Card™ (MIAC) provided with Senior Plus membership was developed to supplement your existing medical records and give the cardholder immediate access and control of their health information. MIAC cards can be updated online by the cardholder and will help ensure that vital health information is communicated to caregivers. This card can simplify getting proper health care by accurately recording crucial information, including prescription drugs and medical history.
Health Education Lectures
Maintaining your health and properly taking care of your body becomes increasingly important as you age. With new information on health care being presented every day, Long Beach Memorial educates their seniors by organizing lectures with expert speakers to give our patients an opportunity to have their questions answered. Each Senior Plus member is supplied with a list of upcoming lectures and kept up-to-date through email.
In addition to the variety of free services provided to Senior Plus members there also are a number of discounted services available. Members receive special rates for exercise classes at Long Beach Memorial which are tailored to seniors, such as senior tai chi. Members also can pass time between doctor visits by enjoying discounted dining at Long Beach Memorial’s Seaside Café, a sit-down restaurant located in the hospital lobby, or shopping at our hospital gift shops.
As a special bonus, members receive discounted over-the-counter prescription drugs at Long Beach Memorial’s outpatient pharmacy and a special rate on a Lifeline personal emergency response system.
The Lifeline personal emergency response system is a portable medical alert device worn as a necklace to give older adults the freedom to leave their house and not depend on phones in case of an emergency.
