  • 1. It's not insurance
    2. Of course no one that is selling the product is going to say anything negative about it. They are trying to make money off of you.
    3. My opinion, it's a total rip off.

  • There's quite a few that work with Ameriplan...its awesome! It is very legit they have been on 60 minutes again just a month ago and also have been on today's show! Basically all you do is you advertise and then educate people about either the home buisness or service! It is up to the people if they want to get the service...all you do is educate them about the service then it is up to them if they want to save more money with healthcare or not. To get more info go to You are going to get alot of people who love it and you are going to get people that down it. I have been doing this for a long while and it has been the best decision I have made! You have to be consistent and persistent with it! Feel free to send me a message if you have any other questions! Have a awesome day!

  • Hey I do Ameriplan and I really love it! The thing that I love best about it is that we offer something that people actually need! In today's economy especially, people can't afford traditional insurance and we offer something that will help them save money on their healthcare expenses that they can actually afford! It is a legit company, it has been around for 16 years and in the press for years! Ameriplan discount plans are accepted at all the major vision centers and pharmacies like Walmert, Walgreens, Pearlvision, Sears, and many more! So, if all of these reputable companies accept our plan then you can be assured that we are legit! It is network marketing just like Mary Kay, Avon, Candle Companies, etc so it IS work! But it is sooo worth it.

  • Cont..The people that usually talk bad about it....either have tried it and gave up too early OR they live in one of the 6 states where Ameriplan is not offered....and they always bash it! The majority of people that work with Ameriplan or use Ameriplan LOVE it! You have to make your own decision.

  • I am new to Ameriplan, so I can't tell you how it is going to work out for me. I work when I want to and I am in control of the results. Some days are harder than others. I have to market it on my own, but they give you tons of resources and training. The hardest part is that you have to be organized and disciplined. I think they have a great product, but it's not for everyone. Some people still get good benefits from their employer, so they don't need our product. They are completely honest and don't encourage you to push anything on anyone, I like that. If you want to talk privately, just respond to this post and I can PM you.

  • Tons of us do Ameriplan. Including me! It's very legit. But We are not insurance. HOWEVER we are, in my opinion, better! We had Health Insurance, paying $120/mo plus co-pays and what not... they only paid up to 70% and that only covered one person. With Ameriplan we paid $39.95/month and get a discount of 50-60% off. So there are still out of pocket costs BUT in total we pay WAY less and it covers an entire family!!

  • Now, what do we do? Well, there are so many answers to that question they can't fit in here! Here is the link to my Journal post about just that... We do most of our work from home, but you can do ANYTHING with this. We don't sell our business we just promote it. What's the difference? I don't talk it up! I just let people know what is offered with us.

    I have got a good number of journals and information on my profile... You can send me a PM with any other questions.
