How does AmeriPlan® select their providers?
Many of our providers are referred to us by our members. We also actively recruit for our network on an on-going basis. All providers must have an active license in the state in which they practice and have professional liability insurance. The license is verified and checked for revocations, suspensions and actions. Assessments and on-site inspections are made to provider offices.
Am I really saving money with AmeriPlan® or are the dentists fees inflated to make up for the discount?
All dental procedures are provided to members with a corresponding discounted fee or a percentage off dentist’s Usual and Customary Fee (UCF). The only exceptions are Invisalign Braces in some dental offices and orthodontics in process.
How often can I go to the dentist or chiropractor?
There are no limitations on number of visits.
How do I file a complaint about the fees charged or the quality of care in a dental or chiropractic office?
If unable to resolve a fee issue with the provider’s office, member’s should call AmeriPlan® Customer Service where they will be directed to a Patient/Provider Liaison. Quality of care issues may be referred to the State Professional Board for investigation if AmeriPlan®, the member and the dental provider cannot resolve the issue.
Will membership fees be raised after I become a member?
No, you are guaranteed that your membership fee will not be raised for 2 years from when you sign up or renew.
