Nurse/Respiratory Therapist Discount

I was hoping to apply for the healthcare employee discount. I am a physical therapist in a hospital and work alongside nurses and respiratory therapists. Unfortunately these programs commonly overlook physical, occupational, and speech therapists.  I was given a loyalty discount when I contacted Verizon about it, but all the could address about the core issue was assurances that someday Verizon will include discounts for these professions as well.  No timeline.  While I’m happy to have gotten a discount of any sort, I was hoping for there to be a change that makes this healthcare discount accessible to those who are also providing frontline care without an hour long chat with a Verizon representative.  Is there someone I can talk with to address this and maybe see if there is a way to petition for these professions to be included in the discount program as well? Who can I talk to about this to work on including the other care providers who are equally important and involved with caring for patients as these professionals are?

I completely understand your want to make sure that more careers are noticed for First Responder/Nursing. I'm happy to help you get any information that I can. How can I help you with this?

Who can I contact to get the ball moving to help include other frontline and essential professions as well? We all work together side by side and it seems like an oversight to not include these individuals as they play just as an important and impactful role in the recovery of there patients. Thank you

While there's no direct contact information I can provide you with, I will ensure feedback is submitted to the proper team on our end, so the Discounts can be addressed and looked into further for possible updates.
