Using the strength of its large membership, PASR has negotiated attractive group rates on a number of products and services. PASR endorses services and products as a value added benefit to its members and does not receive financial compensation for endorsement of any product or service.
The philosophy that has always governed PASR’s endorsement of commercial products is “Any financial benefits that might be derived from extending the PASR’s name to endorse a commercial product must accrue to the individual members who elect to purchase the product, not to the organization.” In short, PASR does not solicit commissions or rebates from the companies it endorses and insists that such considerations be passed on to the individuals in the form of lower prices. We do not endorse to raise monies but to provide an additional service to our membership. Expenses related to marketing of the endorsed programs are typically paid by the companies and not by the association. So, PASR’s endorsements do not cost the association or its members. The following endorsements offer members the opportunity to save—just another way that your PASR membership works on your behalf.
PASR has partnered with Dutch Wonderland, Idlewild & Soakzone, Kennywood, and many other amusement parks around the country to offer discounted pricing to all members of our association. There’s never been a better time to gather up the children and grandchildren for a family outing. To purchase these discounted online tickets, you must log onto the members’ only section of this website.

Medical Alarm Concepts is a personal emergency response system provider. What makes this system unique is that this medical alert system allows you to speak and listen directly through the wearable pendant transmitter, called a MediPendant™. When the large button on the pendant is pressed, a telephone call is made to an EMT-certified emergency operator. The operator will immediately dispatch medical personnel or a loved one to your location. They will also contact anyone that you have listed on your custom call list. PASR members are offered a special discount off the monthly cost of the MediPendant™ PERS, which equates to less than $1 a day to provide you or a loved one with peace of mind. Getting started is easy because there is no service contract required and no cost for the equipment. As an added bonus, Medical Alarm Concepts will provide participating PASR members with a door emergency lockbox free-of-charge. This convenient device allows you to safely and securely store a key to your residence so that emergency personnel can gain access without breaking in and causing unnecessary damage to your home.

Long-Term Care and Final Expense Life Insurances
If you need home health care or care in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, the costs for this custodial care can easily approach $60,000 a year or more! Most people cannot afford these continued expenses without some help. PASR has negotiated arrangements with some of the most highly rated and stable long term care insurance companies to offer individualized plans so that members may choose the one that best suits their needs.

Survivors may find themselves left in debt, on top of grieving for their lost loved one. PASR has partnered with Nationwide to bring you final expense life Insurance, which features guaranteed level premiums for life, access to cash value in times of need, and easy application—no medical exam and a one-page application form.
