Additional Personal Benefits

As a nurse - and as an ANA/Missouri Nurses Association 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 ANA's Personal Benefits, we are here to help with five important programs that every nurse must consider. ANA has carefully screened partners committed to providing ANA member nurses with great value, and we make it easy to cover yourself in these critical areas.

Many nurses mistakenly believe they are covered by their employer's liability insurance - until a lawsuit is filed and they find that no one is advocating for their interests. Protect yourself and your career with professional liability insurance. ANA has partnered with Mercer, a global leader in insurance, to offer liability coverage specifically geared to nurses. Malpractice judgement awards exceed $3.7 billion annually and are growing (Becker's Hospital Review, 5/3/14). Remember, you can be sued even if you did nothing wrong, and an investment in liability insurance will protect your future and the future of your family. Get the protection you need without paying more than is necessary by taking advance of Mercer's competitive rates for ANA members.

ANA members can save up to 4% off of Nationwide's great rates, and when you add features like Vanishing Deductibles®1, you can save $100 off your deductible for every year of safe driving, for up to $500 in savings.

Nurses know that without proper planning, the costs of long-term care provided services can wipe out an lifetime of saving. Many may feel comfortable relying on their children or family members for support and find that Long-Term Care (LTC) insurance would significantly cover these expenses and help to keep them personally in control. Securing quality LTC insurance protection is a serious undertaking; that is why proper planning for ourselves and our families is increasingly critical to us all. ANA has teamed up with Anchor Health Administrators to access special LTC rates through a company that for almost 20 years has only worked with nurses and their families. ANA members will receive a 5% discount on top of any other available discounts, and will have personal access to specialized licensed advocates who help nurse's every day with their LTC needs.
