Discount-guide-minNo matter where you are on your med travel journey, you’re probably familiar with the perks that come with the career. For starters, there’s the benefits that come with being a Fusion Medical Staffing traveler. You know, competitive pay packages, health + dental + vision insurance coverage, 401k investment, 24/7 access to mental health resources, et cetera, et cetera (the list goes on and on). There’s also the variety of deals that offer nurses and medical professionals (you!) discounts on, well, pretty much anything you can imagine: Travel and entertainment, clothing and accessories, lifestyle, health, and more.

 

 

Discounts for Medical Professionals

 

 

Now, I don’t know about you, but discounted prices make our souls sing. I mean, who doesn’t love saving money?! In a world where inflation runs rampant, it can be hard to get the best bang for your buck. So, we created this handy dandy discount guide to help you shave a few bucks off your total shopping bill.

 

How to access your medical professional perks

Before we jump into the good stuff, you should first know how you can access these perks. While some are Fusion-specific, others come from Shop.ID.me. What is ID.me? Excellent question. Here’s the sitch: ID.me is “a trusted technology partner to multiple government agencies.” It’s also an online platform that offers discounts from big retail brands to government workers, public servants, and medical professionals. Think: discounts on everything from clothing brands like Calvin Klein, entertainment tickets to Disneyland, premium hotel rooms, airline flights, and more.

The only catch is that to access these discounts from ID.me, you have to create an account, and provide identification proof that you are, in fact, a medical professional. Don’t worry, we’ve broken it down into steps, so that there’s nothing unexpected when you go to create your account.

First, here’s what you can expect when you arrive at the ID.me medical homepage:

homepage-minYou’ll notice some sick deals right off the bat! Use the category bar towards the top to help navigate through the site to find the deals you’re looking for. For instance, under “Travel & Entertainment,” you’ll find hotel, flight, and car rental discounts.

Once you’ve found a deal that fits your fancy, click on the “Unlock to Save” button. From there, you’ll be redirected to this page:id.me-min

Here is where you create your ID.me account! Enter your email, set a password, and hit the magic button. Afterwards, you may be asked to verify your account via email, so be prepared for that. Next, you’ll be asked to enter in some personal information like your date of birth, address, and NPI number.

id.me3-minID.me uses this information to help prevent duplication, impersonation, and deception. To help ease any anxiety you may be having about sharing such sensitive information, ID.me uses bank-grade encryption to keep your identity safe and secure. Now that you’ve done the hard parts, it’s time to reap the rewards! Here they are...

rental car-minObviously, once you make it to your travel job destination, you’ll need a way to get around the town.
