Tom entered the room and sat in the chair that was in the center.

The patient looked at all various instruments and bottles on the counters as the dentist's back was turned. He was a bit nervous, as this was his first composite filling.

"Open wide," the dentist said as he began the procedure.

When the filling was done, Tom went back to the receptionist desk.

The woman calculated the cost and said, "That would be $201.00."

Tom fished out his wallet and picked through his cards. Retrieving a white card, he asked, "Do you take this?"

The receptionist took the card and looked at it. Various logos were posted on it, including AmeriPlan and HealthTrans. Curiously, she ran it through the scanner. With a surprised look on her face, she gave the card back to Tom.

"Sir, the price just went down to $95.00."

There is a very good reason AmeriPlan was featured on Good Morning America earlier this month, and ranked the number one dental plan in America by Morley Safer several years back. We offer affordable discount programs that help people save big money at the dentist, hospital, and other facilities related to health. In addition, not only are we not insurance, but we cover things that insurance generally does not. For example, everyone in the household, related or not, and at any age, can reap the benefits.
