Three discounts you’d be surprised to learn you get as a VUMC employee

As an employee of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, you have access to discounted prices on dozens of goods and services — from uniforms, movie tickets and mobile phone service to Titans tickets, pet boarding and laser hair removal. Most discounts are available to employees year-round, but some are seasonal or related to a specific event and for a limited event. The best way to stay in-the-know is to subscribe to the VUMC Discount listserv. You can also visit the HR Website for a list of discounts.

While many employees are aware of free MTA fares and discounted Regal movie tickets, here are three discounts you might be surprise to learn you can receive:

Medical air evacuation
Life Shield Alliance discount As a Vanderbilt University Medical Center employee, you can join LifeShield Alliance for a discounted membership rate of just $54.95 per year.

LifeShield will pay $10,000 for a qualified air evacuation by any air ambulance provider anywhere in the United States. And the best part is part of your membership fee goes to support air medical safety education and medical research.
