Americans are now feeling the pain of the economic recession. Aside from millions losing their jobs, those who have their jobs intact are incurring more expenses especially when it comes to paying for their their health care since most employers are also cutting cost especially their healtcare programs. Workers in the U.S. are clamoring for a better health care coverage and President Barrack Obama is caught in the middle of this.
This is not unusual in the Philippine set-up where we usually pay for all our healthcare services unless it is covered by our Medicare or health insurance from the company we are working for or a personal insurance we got for ourselves. Dental care is also not a priority and such is the reason why 9 out of 10 Filipino children have cavities.
Anyway, I’ve learned heard healthcare services discount provider in the U.S. that could help them cushion their expenses a bit.
Ameriplan gives more options and such as packages for dental, vision, prescription, chiropractic discount programs. They also have packages for pysician care, ancillary services, and hospital advocacy. Packages start from $14.95 a month to $59.95 for the entire family.
Just a clarification though, American is not a health insurance but an alternative to it. They provide discounts at certain healthcare providers for medical services. They also do not make direct payments and they only provide discounts. The holder is still obligated to pay the amount due to all the healcare services incurred.
