Question

Can I get an EMT discount with Nationwide?

I am a full-time EMT, responding to 911 emergencies. I read somewhere that Nationwide gives discounts to EMT's. Is this true? I am a 23 yo EMT that works for a Contracted ambulance company to provide emergency transport services in 911 situations for orange county. I have history of only one traffic accident and it was more than 5 years ago.

To my knowledge, Nationwide does offer discounts to EMT but I'm not 100% if there are any specifics to the state of California. Because car insurance is regulated at the state, there could be some implications regarding California's state legislator that would prohibit employment status being considered. However, my best recommendation is not to consider the availability of this discount when shopping for car insurance. This discount is usually very small, maybe a few percentages off your total car insurance premium. My best recommendation for getting cheap car insurance is to shop around as much as possible with as many companies as possible.
