The good news is that AmeriPlan and similar dental discount plans are not insurance. Dental providers are willing to provide their services at a discount to members of these plans because:
– They don’t have claims forms to file
– They don’t have to preauthorize any treatment
– They don’t have to submit to Insurance Company and wait to be paid 45 days later
There is a lot of anxiety in America in 2013. The Affordable Health Care Act is coming and many Americans are not sure of which plans to get. When Mr Obama signed the act into law there was not a mandatory clause for health plans to include dental insurance, according to AmeriPlan CEO Dennis Bloom. All Americans will be required to have health insurance by 2014, but the problem is that many health plans do not include dental coverage.
While health insurance is of up most importance, a good dental plan can make life a lot easier. It is estimated that 51 million school hours are lost each year, as children miss school due to dental related illness. Tooth decay is the major cause and regularly attending the dental office is the obvious solution. But the fact remains that many Americans can not afford the high cost of dental care without some type of dental plan.
One of the solutions for improved dental hygiene is for every American to have a dental plan. Some states include a dental plan in Medicaid benefits for children. Another solution is to select a health plan from your employer that does include dental. When those solutions are not possible it is advisable to compare available dental plans for yourself and family.
One AmeriPlan Member recently stated: “Last September my son had a bicycle accident and nearly lost four teeth. The AmeriPlan Dentist was able to save his teeth with root canal treatment and dental crowns. We could have easily paid twice as much if we did not have the dental discount card.”
