  • I know you can do a discount plan with Ameriplan and it goes into affect RIGHT AWAY. your ID number is emailed to you while you are waiting for your card in the mail. We have plans that start at ONLY $14.95 a month and that does cover your entire house and Vision. So it's not insurance but it will cover the vision and give you a huge discount. Plus if you want you can always cancel after his appointment if you don't think you'll use it again.
    You can call me if you'd like and I can explain or you can go to for all of our plan information.
    There are no restrictions or qualifications either and you can use these WITH your insurance :)

  • Call the number on the back of your insurance card; they will be able to tell you what is covered under your plan.

  • Hey I posted about the Ameriplan discount plans.
    I just found out that starting tomorrow morning our plans are on sale for 1/2 price!!! It is a Back to school special they are running. So you can get that vision plan for ONLY $7.48 now and that price will stay 1/2 like that for 12 months!!!

  • Eye exams and glasses are so cheap now I'd not bother with ins for it. You end up spending more. Go to walmart and pay out of pocket.
