2) Call Member Support toll free at 800-647-8421.

Are providers reimbursed by AmeriPlan for their services?2021-06-16T14:34:47-05:00

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

Why would a medical professional participate in the AmeriPlan Consumer driven Health Care Plan Dental Plus and Deluxe Plus?2021-06-16T14:39:34-05:00

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

1) Care and treatment are put back into the healthcare provider’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.

Emergency & Hospital

Are there plans for emergency services?2021-06-16T14:44:12-05:00

Yes. Emergency services may or may not be contracted with the AmeriPlan Deluxe Plus plan. Depending on the extent of the charges, these services may be eligible for the Hospital Advocacy Plan.

Can you briefly describe the Hospital Advocacy Plan?2021-06-16T14:45:13-05:00

The Hospital Advocacy plan is designed to help members with their medical bills whenever a single hospital visit totals $1,500. (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 plans to payment plans. There is a waiting period of three business days from the active date of your membership to utilize this plan.

Does the AmeriPlan member have a choice of which hospital will be used?2021-06-16T14:45:53-05:00
