Insurance Benefits

As a climber, finding a half-decent insurance package can be a real challenge. Since we all deserve insurance for ourselves and our families, the AAC has partnered with some incredible companies to provide insurance packages that are actually designed for climbers.

Also available: simplified issue accident-only life insurance plans. Plans are underwritten by some of the best insurance carriers, such as The Prudential family of insurance companies.
    • Accident Insurance Benefit Starting at only $22 a month, you can get accident related injury coverage for a variety of non-climbing activities.

This plan is a perfect supplement to any health insurance policy. Click here to learn more. In addition, members can enjoy access to Emergency Helicopter Rescue protection, Roadside Assistance, and more.
    * Not all plans are available in every state. Please ask the plan administrator about plan availability in your area. Insurance and other benefit services are provided as a “service” performed by licensed agents with the Nicholas Hill Benefit Group, Inc. (NHBG). Plans may be subject to full underwriting and may potentially exclude or decline to offer coverage based on pre-existing health conditions, occupations and avocations (including but not limited to climbing/mountaineering).
