Personal Benefits

As a nurse and ASNA/ANA member, you are committed to providing superior care to your patients. It is your passion, and you invest all of your energy in your work. But who is taking care of you while you take care of others? Through ASNA/ANA’s Personal Benefits, we are here to help with six important programs that every nurse must consider. ASNA/ANA has carefully screened partners committed to providing ASNA/ANA member nurses with great value, and we make it easy to cover yourself in these critical areas.

Fitness Memberships

It is critical for nurses to be active and fit, both for their physical and mental well-being. ASNA/ANA members now have access to the Active & Fit DirectTM Fitness Membership program to help. For only $25 a month (plus enrollment fees and applicable taxes), ASNA/ANA members can join one of 11,000+ fitness centers in Active & Fit Direct’s Standard network (including brands like Gold’s Gym, LA Fitness, YMCA, SNAP Fitness, and Curves). In addition, the Active & Fit Direct program includes access to over 4,000+ digital workout videos for those who prefer to exercise at home, requires no long-term contracts, and offers healthy lifestyle one-on-one coaching. Plus, the Active&Fit Direct program just added over 5,000+ Exercise Studios and Fitness Centers in their new Premium network (including brands like Club Pilates, Pure Barre, Cyclebar and YogaSix), where ASNA/ANA members can save 10-30% on membership.

This offer is not open to the general public, but ASNA/ANA members can enroll their spouse (or Domestic Partner). The Active&Fit Direct program allows you to see the participating centers in your area before you join. Also, all ASNA/ANA members can view 200 online workout videos for free just by registering on the website. Find out why the Active&Fit Direct program has 96% overall satisfaction!

Auto & Home Insurance

Everyone needs Auto and Home insurance – let ASNA/ANA take the hassle out of finding the best provider and best rate. ASNA/ANA is partnering with Liberty Mutual to offer auto and home insurance to members with a quick and convenient application process and great rates. Members can potentially save $947 with customized auto and home insurance.*

Professional Liability Insurance

Nurses need to protect themselves and their career by maintaining Professional Liability Insurance, a.k.a. Medical Malpractice Insurance. Do not assume your employer’s liability insurance will cover you when a lawsuit or complaint is filed. Nurses Service Organization (NSO) has a 45+ year history of defending nursing professionals from allegations of medical malpractice and licensing complaints. With over 500,000 nursing professionals insured and 60+ professional nursing association partners, they are the premier administrator of nurses’ malpractice insurance in the U.S.

We encourage you to explore NSO’s website, receive a quick rate quote, and browse the case studies and articles in NSO’s Learning Center. In the Learning Center, you will find NSO’s 4th Nurses Claim Report. It provides statistical data and an analysis of malpractice and licensing claims, as well as recommendations on how you can avoid potential problems in your practice.

Term Life/AD&D Insurance

ASNA/ANA’s collaboration with Prudential provides exclusive insurance plans for ASNA/ANA Members. Term Life Insurance can help protect your loved ones in the event you pass away – and your coverage stays in place even if your health or employer changes. AD&D protects you from an accident that results in death or dismemberment. Both products offer competitive and affordable rates for ASNA/ANA members with quick and simple access – applying takes about 10 minutes and you can get coverage in as little as 30 days! Products may not be available in all states.

Plan a trip and watch the savings grow – it pays to be an ASNA/ANA member!

Long Term Care Insurance/Final Expense Insurance

Long Term Care Insurance is increasingly the choice of ASNA/ANA Members seeking to protect their hard-earned assets from the high cost of long-term services along with the resulting financial spend-down and potential loss of self-reliance.

Final Expense Insurance, also known as Burial or Funeral Insurance, is a type of whole life insurance designed for those over 40 years of age, to cover funeral expenses and existing bills when you pass.

Through ASNA/ANA’s partnership with Anchor Health Administrators (AHA), members receive specialized advocate services for these much-needed protections. AHA is a company that, for almost 30 years, has specialized in working with Nurses/Spouses to provide the best personal solutions for their planning needs.
