Within 10-14 days of receipt of your application at corporate headquarters in Plano, TX, you receive a Member Information Guide and Membership Identification card(s). Present your Membership ID card to any AmeriPlan® provider and you will be eligible to receive discounted fees. You pay the provider at the time of service.


Back to top.

Can I purchase the Total Health program without including the Dental Plus™ program?

No


Back to top.

Can the Total Health program be used in conjunction with health insurance plans?

Yes, but it is at the physician's discretion whether to accept both. As with our Dental Plus™ program, a member's insurance should always be the primary form of payment.


Back to top.

Will Total Health program members receive a discount?

All members should receive a minimum 15% discount.


Back to top.

Why would a medical professional participate in the AmeriPlan® Consumer Driven Health Care Program (Total Health)?

There are many reasons. Some of the most important are:

  1. Patient care and treatment are put back into the physician's hands.
  2. The provider gets paid at the time of care. Many insurance plans take up to 120 days for payment.
  3. Office administrative costs are reduced. No paperwork to complete, file and follow up on.
  4. Providers may receive a net increase in revenue to the practice versus insurance (HMO or PPO).
  5. The provider is part of an affiliation of like-minded professionals, without being "under the thumb" of managed care.
  6. AmeriPlan® provides members with quality, discounted healthcare.


Back to top.

Can you briefly describe the Hospital Advocacy Program?

The Hospital Advocacy program is designed to help members with their medical bills whenever a single hospital visit totals $2,500. (For the insured, this means the amount you are personally responsible for, aside from your deductible.) Charges can be incurred from multiple providers. The patient advocate negotiates on behalf of the patient and pursues a wide range of options, from government entitlement programs to payment plans. There is a waiting period of three buisness days from the active date of your membership to utilize this program.


Back to top.

How is the discount calculated?

The rates that the provider charges are determined based upon either a set fee schedule that the provider has contracted, or as a percentage off of their billed charges. In general, discounts will vary between 20% and 50%. Labs and diagnostics will have discounts of up to 80%.


Back to top.

Is Total Health contracted on an annual basis and cancelable at any time, like Dental Plus™?

Yes


Back to top.

How do I locate an AmeriPlan Total Health® provider?

There are two ways to locate a provider:

  1. A provider locator is available at providersearch.ameriplanusa.com. This is particularly useful for medical providers.
  2. Call member® customer service at 800-647-8421.

Can the Total Health program be used with Medicare/Medicaid?

No. Medicare does not allow their providers to charge a Medicare patient a different price.

Are doctors reimbursed by AmeriPlan® for their services?

No. As with all of our health programs, the provider receives the full discounted fee from the member at the time services are rendered.


Back to top.

Can members downgrade from AmeriPlan Total Health® to the Dental Plus™ Program?

Yes
