Healthcare workers have been our nation's new heroes since the pandemic began more than 18 months ago. Many of you had never been in this situation before. Those of us who have been military docs already know this drill. You get a lot of people telling you “thank you for your service” when they see you in your uniform. Lots of businesses offer you discounts, occasionally someone buys your lunch anonymously, and you learn to start asking “Do you offer a military discount?” This time, it's healthcare workers who have gotten to enjoy and share the benefits of a thankful country.

Just in time for the holidays, below is a big long list of companies that are still offering discounts for healthcare workers like physicians, dentists, APCs, and other healthcare professionals who read this blog. We ran this holiday list last year, and people seemed to love it. Now, we're bringing it back for 2021.

Hopefully, you can find one or two discounts you can use for yourself or for a loved one. (Specific details to the discount can be found at each of their links.) But even if a company isn't listed, don't be afraid to ask for a healthcare discount. Note that many of these companies use SheerID or ID.me to verify your professional status. Others require you to show a badge. Still others use the honor system. The more you save, the more verification you'll be asked to provide.

The following list is by no means exhaustive. There are hundreds of companies offering discounts for healthcare workers and first responders, so if you don’t see the specific brand you’re looking for below, be sure to check Sheer ID and ID.me for additional discounts.

Hopefully, though, it'll be worth it to save some money at a time when people are really appreciative of what we do.
