I'm guessing you mean medical ID bracelet. I use a shoe tag but have bought cheap (under $15) bracelets from my local jeweler they also engraved it for free! I used to use the medic alert ones but found I could break anything they had within a couple of days.

I have seen inexpensive ones at the pharmacy. It really depends on what you think is inexpensive. There are a few online sites that have interesting looking bracelets for the $35 to $50 range also.

CVS has generic ids for about $10. I bought mine there when they had a sale $5. I wanted a cheap one to test drive styles before commiting to a more expensive one.
