Now you must be wondering is Ameriplan a scam? Here is our review about the product being offered and how you can earn an income while getting covered by a healthcare plan works.
Is Ameriplan a scam?
Ameriplan is a company established since 1992 and offers different healthcare plans such as discount health care, dental and prescription plans. It claims to be one of the best discount medical plan organization that offer wide range of discounted healthcare services to its members.

Earning from Ameriplan
Aside from availing of the healthcare plans from Ameriplan you are also entitled to earn a commission on every successful recruit to sign up for the Ameriplan. How much you will earn will depends on your membership level with the company. For instance if you signed up for the Platinum Plus membership you will be entitled to a 20% commission on your sales, 30% for the Total Platinum, 40% for the Platinum Freedom Pass and so on. However there is a catch when you join the recruitment program of Ameriplan. In order to be eligible for a commission you need to maintain a target sale and recruiting people under your name or you will pay the difference of the target amount of sign up for each membership level. For instance for the Platinum Plus the cost of subscription is $50 so you need to exceed $50 monthly sales otherwise you will pay for the difference. Once you exceed the target amount you will start earning money as sale commissions.
MLM scheme or not
Ameriplan uses two ways of marketing its business. First is using a business model where you can market Ameriplan by advertisements in order to sell their plans. You can also recruit people in order to earn a commission for every sign up. The second scheme is selling the Ameriplan dental and health care plans. Considering this type of business approached used by Ameriplan many are starting to wonder whether this is just another multi-level marketing business.
You will have the opportunity to earn two ways by becoming a member. You can sell the Ameriplan packages and also recruit people to sign up. You get to earn commission from doing either or both.
The training support is mainly focused on the recruitment side of the business and does not provide rigid support to members on how to sell their health care and dental plans. It is not also suitable for people who do not want to get out of their way to call people and sell out products and recruiting people.
Is Ameriplan a scam? Answering this can be a bit tricky since the business of the company is between legitimately selling health care plans and running an MLM business. While the focus of Ameriplan is recruiting people to sign up as members they also have legitimate products to sell the public which does not make their business a scam. But for some who experience having to recruit people and maintain a certain target sale to get a commission every month, which is sometime difficult to achieve, Ameriplan just might be an MLM scam hiding behind the cloak of a legitimate business. What they offer seems too good to be true and it depends upon you to contemplate whether it is worth joining.
