Ameriplan Company Overview

Is ameriplan a scam

The owners Dennis and Daniel Bloom

Ameriplan USA is a worldwide company based out of Plano Texas, that offers discount dental,healthcare,and prescription plans. The company was founded back in 1992, and has millions of members as well as IBO’s (Independent Business Owner) who are promoting the company.


How does Ameriplan work and what products or services do they have to offer?

When you join Ameriplan you have the option of choosing a membership level they are as follows:

This covers your entire family for only 19.95 a month.

If you ever need to be hospitalized and it costs more than $2,500 then this plan will help cover the costs of your hospital bill.

This plan costs 49.95 a month.

  • automotive

  • theme parks
  • movie theaters
  • shopping.

You can get additional discounts on

  • PC purchases

The cost of this plan is $50 a month.

This plan costs $75 a month

  • You can also enjoy additional savings on cruises

  • and much more.

It also comes with thousands of dollars in savings on grocery store brands you buy everyday.

It also includes

  • digital coupons
  •  coupons you can print in their members only section of their website.
  • my deals app

These perks are available only to Platinum Freedom Pass Members.

This plan costs a whopping $150 a month and covers everyone in your household.

 How Ameriplan works and how you make money with them

Depending on what membership plan you sign up for will determine how much money you can make on each sale. Everything is broken down into a commission scale.

I just want to add that I was a member of Ameriplan for about 2 months and the most popular package they have is the platinum plus plan. When you join you also get 1 personalized automated website that is already setup for you.

 This is the breakdown of their commission payout

1.The $50 platinum plus pays you 20% commission of all sales you get. You continue to pay $50 a month until you get enough people signed up under your name, then you will start getting paid when your commissions exceed $50 a month.

2. The $75 a month total platinum pays you 30% commission on all sales you get. Like I mentioned above until you exceed the $75 in sales needed for that month you will be paying the difference of whatever you need to reach that $75 monthly charge. You will start earning money for any sales above $75 a month.

3. The $150 a month platinum freedom pass pays you 40% commission on all sales you get. Once you exceed $150 in sales for that month you will start earning money.

There are 2 ways you can market this business and I will explain both of them in detail.

1. The business model When you join Ameriplan you will have the opportunity to get other people to join under your name, doing the same thing you are doing. The way it works is they tell you to post help wanted ads on craigslist, and other job related  board sites.

When people contact you about the job offers you will direct them to your personalized website and tell them to fill out the contact form and request an interview with you on the phone.

This is when you tell them what they will be doing, basically recruiting other people known as IBO’s to promote Ameriplan.

2. Selling the healthcare and dental packages You can choose to only sell the dental and healthcare package, or you can do both of them. Mostly all of this is done over the phone, you have to purchase a list of leads and randomly call people up and tell them what you have to offer.

Who is Ameriplan USA for?

Ameriplan is for anyone looking to start up a business of their own or would like to help people who don’t have health insurance. It is also ideal for stay at home moms who is looking to make extra income. If you enjoy talking on the phone for hours at a time then Ameriplan is the perfect business for you.

What tools and training are provided?

When you join you get 1 free personalized automated website, along with live training calls every Tuesday evening at 8 pm. There is also training materials available in your back office, and you can call your recruiter at any time you want and ask questions.

 Does Ameriplan offer any support?

You can call your recruiter or any member of the training team with questions at any time, and if you don’t understand something they will explain it to you.

 Pros vs Cons


  • The discount dental and various healthcare options are great for anyone who doesn’t have insurance.
  • If you are the type of person who loves talking on the phone and can sell strangers stuff over the phone this is a great opportunity for you to make some really good money.
  • The telephone support and training you are offered is great.
  • They have many different incentive programs to try and get you motivated to make more sales.


  • In order to use the discounts for the healthcare and dental plans you have to go to someone in their network or they won’t cover the cost.
  • Hard to find doctors or dentists that accept Ameriplan (their network of doctors/dentists is not as large as they say it is) 
  • If you don’t like to talk on the phone or if you are not a salesman then this opportunity is definitely not for you.
  • There have been several complaints that after you have built up a pretty huge income for yourself, the company will terminate you under a no cause contract. This means that they can terminate you at any time for no reason.
  • They say backed up by the BBB (Better business Bureau) but when you check them out there are over 200 negative reviews about this company.
  • It is setup like a lot of  pyramid schemes, and is pretty much a MLM company.

The price to join Ameriplan

Like I have mentioned above you can get started anywhere from $12.95-$150.00 a month along with a 19.95 yearly fee that is included with your start up costs.

 My thoughts on Ameriplan USA

Ameriplan USA is not for everyone, I joined and was only with the company for about 2 months. The main focus of the company is to get you to sign up other members under your name. It seems to me like they just use the prescription, healthcare and, dental to get you to join.

If you are not comfortable with the idea of cold calling and hard selling to people over the phone, along with trying to get people to join your down line/up line then this opportunity is not for you. However, if you love the idea of cold calling and hard selling and this doesn’t bother you then you will probably fit in well with Ameriplan.

In the whole 2 months I was there they never once offered any training on how to sell the discount healthcare products. If you are a sales person and love talking on the phone this could be a great way to make some decent money.

I personally don’t like talking on the phone especially to someone I don’t know and try to sell them something.

I would also be really careful when joining, in the past few years there have been complaints of them terminating you for no reason whatsoever.

My personal recommendation

If you are looking for a 100% true work at home opportunity with no risk involved and a chance to build a real future for yourself. I would recommend wealthy affiliate I have learned so much from them in the year that I have been there. I would highly recommend you check them out. You can get started for Free with no strings attached.

Is Ameriplan USA  really a scam or not?

Is Ameriplan a scam? based on my experience I had with them I wouldn’t say they are a scam.  As with any MLM company, there are many people making good money with this company and others that are not. It just seems risky, if you are with Ameriplan now or have been a member in the past, I would love to hear your experience with this company.

Please leave your review of the company below, and try to be as thorough as possible. Thanks so much, Your Friend Scott



  • Labrit says:

    Scott, I appreciate your kindness to even care enough for others well being and lack of fortune to be scammed into a dead end employment with a company who are not as interested in one’s success. To me it pretty much sounds like they keep you as long as they can, until they use you for all the revenue they possibly can and then just throw you away like yesterday’s trash. I am very cautious about online job searches because I have yet to find one that is legit enough for me.
    I am not looking to become rich but I would like something that would make money not so much as an issue for me anymore.I have battled with employment for some years now and quit frankly, I am tired of the same old routine of making a head CEO of a company richer while I along with thousands of other employees get fed the food crumbs that fall off their hefty plates as they sit on resorts in exotic islands! I have been receiving emails from wealthy affiliate for some time now but I am unsure if I want to join due to the fact that I have very little experience with home based jobs at all.
    This makes me a target to most and I really do not want to face the shame of being robbed out my hard earned money that is not easy to come by. I will continue to browse around until I find what fits me the best. Again, thank you for this blog and if you have any advice for me that would help I would greatly appreciate the guidance!

      Hi there,

      I feel that people need to know the truth about these programs before they join them so they don’t get ripped off. This is exactly what they are doing here to some of their long standing members and this is just wrong to do to anyone. I can totally relate to you being cautious when it comes to getting involved in any online business opportunity. I have been scammed numerous times from many, many make money online opportunities out there and lost thousands of dollars as a result.

      After I left Ameriplan I stumbled onto Wealthy Affiliate and I was very cautious as well after being scammed from several other business opportunities in the online world. I was only there for a few days before I knew that I had found the real deal. In the 2 years that I have been with them I have learned things that I never thought I would ever learn.

      I had also struggled with finding employment and being able to find something that I actually enjoyed doing. This was my main motivation to become successful online and make Wealthy Affiliate work for me. I was the exact same way when I joined WA and I didn’t have the slightest clue as to what I would be doing when I joined or if I could even do the work that was required.

      I just knew that I needed to make this work. I followed the training exactly as it was laid out. After lots of hard work, many frustrations and motivation I am proud to say that I do this full time now. I will be there to help you out and guide you every step of the way so you should NEVER feel like you are on your own. I would highly suggest that you get started by opening your FREE account and setting up your profile.

      I will be contacting you within 1 hour of you joining to make sure you are finding your way around the community and to answer any questions you may have getting started. I really am looking forward to working with you and helping you build an online business that you can be proud of.Thank you so much for stopping by and chiming in on this discussion and I hope to talk to you really soon.

      Your Friend, Scott

    My husband was one of those terminated from AmeriPlan for no reason. He did his required “one piece of business” each month. And they still terminated him. At one time, he got up to over $5,000 a month.

    We both do various affiliate programs. Mostly for health products and Amazon Affiliates program. No quotas, no requirements to buy, no upfront money, etc…

    Since I do health consults, I like having several companies with large amount of health products and equipment available, because each one served requires different product/s, and/or treatment modalities/protocols.

    September 11, 2014 at 8:55 pm
    • Scott Newkirk says:

      I’m sorry to hear that your husband was one of the many people terminated by Ameriplan. It’s sad that companies like this would let you build up an income of over 5K and then terminate you for no reason.I’m glad that you have both discovered affiliate marketing and are making money promoting various health products and equipment.

      I have been involved with the Amazon affiliate program as well and have had pretty good success promoting products from there. There is unlimited potential for anyone to make money promoting products from there.

      Thanks so much for dropping by and sharing your experience with Ameriplan with everyone here. Hopefully this will save people from getting involved with this company and help them find a honest and legitimate way to do business online.

    This article helped a ton! I was really considering this program and am so thankful that I read this first before I did anything drastic. It definitely helped!

    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Luisa,
      I’m so glad that I was able to save you from getting involved in another pyramid scheme and regretting it later on. Making money from the internet is possible, you just need to find the right program that’s going to show you the proper way

      Soon after I left Ameriplan I started really digging deep and doing lots of research on legitimate ways to make money online and I found Wealthy Affiliate. In the time I have been there I have learned so much and I have been able to quit my job, and make a full time income from the comfort of my own home. If you are interested in a way to make money online from home I can definitely help you out with this.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and chiming in on this Luisa and if you need any help getting your online business started or have any questions for me please let me know.

    STAY AWAY FROM AMERIPLAN !!!!! It sounds like a real good deal as a client, but as an IBO … NO GO !!! ( If it sounds too good to be true,,,,,) They do not keep their word. They will tell you one thing to get up to sign up, then the office says different. I was just SCREWED out of $40 because the Lady who convinced me to sign up LIED !!! ………..

    KATHLEEN FIMOGNARI You are a liar. AmeriPlan has stolen $40 of my tuition money. You swore to me a 30 day money back guarantee. You KNEW I would end up screwed in the long run. HOW DARE YOU TELL ME THAT YOU ARE DISAPPOINTED WITH ME !!!!!!!!!! At least I am true to my word. I promise you this, I will tell the world, in every way I can, what your true colors are. Disappointed in me ??? How do you look at yourself in the mirror daily knowing what you do to people???

      I had a similar experience with a company that I decided not to follow up on and got a letter from the founder telling me how frustrated he was with me for not following through and not finishing something that I started. I couldn’t believe it. They try to use guilt to make people do what they want. It is called emotional blackmail.

  • Cynthia says:

    What you say about Ameriplan I will keep in mind while looking for a way to work online. I do know, however, from a friend who works with them, that they do provide their people a lot of training. But that in itself does not mean they are good. How long ago did you leave them? Maybe they added training since then?

    August 4, 2014 at 5:32 pm
    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Cynthia,
      I left Ameriplan in February of 2012. They actually have a good amount of training and you can contact your recruiter at any time if you have questions. The problem that I had with this company is you will have to do lots of cold calling. For some people that may not be a problem, but I just couldn’t see myself doing this.

      Another problem that I had with them is, once you start building up a nice residual income for yourself and you have put lots of hours into this, Ameriplan can and will terminate you for no reason whatsoever. Check out some of the comments below from people who has had this happen to them. The one that you should really pay attention to is from a guy who was with the company for close to 10 years.

      He was making 90,000.00 a year when they terminated him under a no cause contract. This is in NO WAY at all acceptable to me and I honestly cannot recommend this company to anyone. I am so glad that I got out when I did. About a month after I quit Ameriplan, I found Wealthy Affiliate. In the 2 years that I have been with them I have had a huge amount of success and I have achieved things that I thought wasn’t possible.

      If you truly are looking for an honest and legit way to make money online I would suggest that you check them out. You can get started for FREE and try out everything they have to offer at NO RISK whatsoever. I will also be there to offer you my 100% help and support and get you headed in the right direction.

      Thanks so much for stopping by Cynthia and adding your thoughts to this discussion. I really am looking forward to working with you and helping you get started online.

  • Ashlee B. Sure says:

    Reading through this article and the comments is *very* disappointing. So, let me get this straight: you, Scott Newkirk, have opted to sign up with this Wealthy Affiliate (that you *keep* pushing others in the comments section to sign up to do, as well) company and created an “independent” website that is supposed to be *teaching/educating* outsiders on DIFFERENT ways to make money… yet, *aside* from your constant push of Wealthy Affiliate, you have ONLY mentioned *one* other site (which I’m personally very hesitant to even look into, because WA sounds as much like a hoax as Ameriplan) that *may* generate income for others..? That’s really unfortunately sad, because there are a LOT of work from home opportunities, through *many* legitimate companies…especially if skill and experience is under one’s belt. oDesk.com and Elance.com are options, as well as doing a simple search for telecommuting and/or work from home opportunities with reputable companies in Google search to connect you to Flex jobs I did this for my city (Kansas City) and received a *very* lengthy list (FOR FREE)of reputable companies in my area offering *many* work from home opportunities. Honestly, I think this site you have built is doing *no one* justice, as you do not come off as all that knowledgeable about legitimate work from home opps OUTSIDE of Wealthy Affiliate.

    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Ashley,
      I am not pushing Wealthy Affiliate on anybody. I am simply suggesting if you are looking for a legit way to get your own online business started Wealthy Affiliate is your answer. I review all sorts of make money online programs to see if they are worth your hard earned money or not. I then recommend a safe and honest place to learn how online marketing works. You must not have even looked around on my site that much, cause if you did you would have saw that I actually recommend a lot of different ways to make money online besides wealthy affiliate.

      Wealthy Affiliate is an online internet marketing training center. You can learn about everything from local marketing to affiliate marketing and just about any other kind of marketing you can think of. And guess what? You can get started for FREE so why wouldn’t I recommend people to sign up? The reason why I don’t recommend many other programs outside of WA is because over 90% of everything out there is a scam.

      I have just checked out your Flex Jobs opportunity and as soon as I signed up they wanted my credit card info. (It’s not FREE like you said) This should be your first red flag. I am actually going to do a review on this company to see if they are as legit as they claim to be so be on the look out for it.

      I wouldn’t knock something that you don’t know anything about without at least giving it a try. What have you got to lose? Especially when you can get started for FREE If you work hard at this you WILL make money!

      Lots of people don’t have the skills to get jobs at odesk and that is where once again WA comes in at. You can learn new skills and get qualified to land some freelancing jobs. I’m sorry that you feel this way about my site. I have tried just about every work at home opportunity out there so I think i’m more then qualified.

      I wish you all the best Ashlee in your online ventures, Have a good day, Scott

  • Tricia Spice says:

    Scott, I would like to thank you very much. I was actually thinking of calling for an interview right now with Ameriplan but I wanted to look up this place and see what it is about. Sounds pretty crooked. People getting terminated as they make more money? How horrible. I have been looking for an at home job due to recent health issues and so far, no luck. I am broke and really need a job where I can work at home. Should I check out this Wealthy Affiliate? Or any other LEGIT work at home jobs you know about? I am at the point where I need money sooner or later.


    July 24, 2014 at 8:38 pm
    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Tricia,
      I’m so glad that you did your research beforehand and you found my review. I honestly can’t recommend Ameriplan to anyone because of them terminating people whenever they see fit to do so. If you are looking for an honest and totally legit place to learn how to start your own online business, I would highly suggest that you check out Wealthy Affiliate. You can get started for free and learn how to make money online.

      I will also be there to help you out and answer any questions you may have getting started.In the year and a half I have been with them I have been able to quit my job and work from home full time now. I would suggest that you get started by opening your FREE account. The first thing you should do is fill out your profile by uploading a picture of yourself or You could use one of the images that WA provides you with.

      Next, you should write a little about yourself and tell the WA community what you would like to achieve. The more we know about you, the better we can help you out. I really am looking forward to working with you Tricia and helping you make your first $1 online. I hope this has helped you out and answered your questions and if you have anymore questions please let me know.

    Oh my gosh am I glad I did not march forward with this company. I think they really take advantage of people between a rock and a hard spot.
    Anyway, I am so so glad I found your site because of your down to earth honest review. Do you know how hard it is to find legit reviews online? I am on disability and I am so sick of living off so little. I am tired of being dependant Ugh. All I have to make is 1000.00 a month as soon as possible. Is that doable working hard 6-8 hours everyday? I am teachable I just have to re-read things a couple of times because of my short term memory problems. Anyway, sorry to be rambling on….thanks again Scott and I will be signing up!

    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Debbie,
      I am glad that you found my website as well and that I was able to save you from getting scammed by this company. MLM companies like Ameriplan sole purpose is to target people who need to make money fast. They make their program sound so enticing and people buy into their empty promises. Every program that I review on this website is down to earth and honest.

      I feel like its my job to inform people about all the scams out there and show them a legit place to get an online business started.

      Trust me I know it’s hard to find legit reviews online because I spent nearly 20 years trying to find a real opportunity. How long it takes people to get trained and start making money varies. Personally for me it took about 9 months to reach 1K per month. It could take you less then that or it could take you longer.

      It all depends on how fast you pick this stuff up and how much time you are willing to spend doing this each day. I would say if you can devote 6-8 hours to this daily then you should be able to reach this goal in a reasonable amount of time. I would suggest that you check out everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer and sign up for your FREE account.

      I will be getting in touch with you within an hour of you joining to make sure you are finding your way around the community OK and answer any questions you might have. I really am looking forward to working with you Debbie and helping you out as much as I possibly can.

      Find something you like doing and it will be easier.Most of these type companies do cold calling.They also seem to have the pyramid flavor to them.Keep selling the pitch to others so you have income.No thanks I don’t like the instability.I might suggest data entry if you have those skills.There seem to be more legitimate companies in that area that will allow telecommute online work.

        Yes I would recommend taking a passion or hobby of yours and turn it into a full time business. This is called affiliate marketing and I do this Full time and make full time money doing it. I would highly recommend this if you are a stay at home mom looking to make extra money, or if you would like to make a career out of it.

  • Roxi says:

    To Anyone Who Needs a Refund from Ameriplan:

    You need to send a letter to the Corporation to the owners and it needs to be sent with certified and signature upon receipt so you will receive this card back in the mail. Once you have done this, you are legally due your money. You must request your refund and/or your lost income if you were terminated even for no reason. Find out if it is legal in your state to fire someone for no reason when they have built up a residual income. You should still be able to recoup your residual income if you get all the facts straight. But send your letter requesting refund and/or residual income asap. You may choose to find an attorney to give you a few specifics. Write down the questions you have and call several attys. Ask each one a question or 2 or 3 whatever he is willing to answer during your initial phone call. Many attorneys give a short, initial consultation. Ask questions clearly & succinctly. You may choose to find others and do a class action against the company. Maybe Scott will ask those on here who chose to be a part, will create a list and give each person on the list the email or phone of the others. All the best to you all! I do hate to see Liars, Scammers, Scumbag People take advantage of others. You shouldn’t be afraid to speak the truth, Scott. Clearly Ameriplan is run by Lowlife Scamming Jerks!

    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Roxi,
      Great information that you have shared with everyone here. I’m sure that this will help lots of people as well as give them the information that they need to do something about Ameriplan. I think it’s downright dirty for a company to do that to someone who has worked so hard to get where they are.

      Something needs to be done about this and I’m glad you have shared this with everyone here. I think that creating a list of everyone who has had this happen to them is a great idea and I will see what I can come up with on this. I 100% agree with you about taking advantage of people and I can’t stand Scammers liers or thieves either.

      As a matter of fact that’s why I created this website to warn people of all the scams out there and to show everyone a safe and legitimate place to build a real online business I even show them how to get started for FREE and offer my help and support.

      For anyone reading this and you are looking for a way to start making money online I would strongly recommend that you check it out. Thanks so much for stopping by Roxi and sharing this with everyone here and if there is anything I can do to help you out let me know.

    Ameriplan is a scam. Buyer beware! Their website states that you can cancel at any time, but they will still charge you for a few months after that. I spoke to 2 supervisors who refused to give me a refund and would not acknowledge that their website stated differently.

      Hi Tiffany,
      I agree that Ameriplan is a very shady company and I don’t agree with how they operate. If you check out some of the comments below you will see just how much of a scam this company really is. I’m sorry to hear that you got ripped off by this company and I would call the corporate office and demand a refund. I had to go through a lot to get my money back from them but I finally got it back.

      If you are looking for a real way to actually start your own business online and be in control of it without being terminated after you put in lots of hard work(Check the comments below). I would advise you to check out Wealthy Affiliate. They are the only place that you can actually have your own business up and running and get started for free.

      I will be there to help you out every step of the way and answer any questions you might have when getting started. They have changed my life so much for the better and I now am working from home full time now. I would love to show you how to do the same thing if you are interested. Thanks so much for stopping by Tiffany and sharing your story with everyone here and I am looking forward to working with you.

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for the helpful info on Ameriplan. Just wondering with WA what type of money are you making and did you sent up a business / website?
    Are you marketing products or information?

    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Jim,
      I’m glad that you have enjoyed this review and I hope it has helped you avoid this company and find a legitimate place to learn how internet business works. I am not going to disclose my income here but I will tell you that I am making somewhere in the 4 figure a month range. This number is growing everyday and if it wasn’t for the help and support of Wealthy Affiliate I would never be able to achieve that kind of success.

      Yes I did setup a business website and this website here is it. I am marketing products and information about the many ways that you can make money online legitimately. If you would like to do the same thing that I have done I would highly recommend that you join WA and get started with your free starter account.

      I will also be there to help you out every step of the way if you have any questions or need a hand with anything. I am really looking forward to working with you Jim and helping you out in any way I can. Thanks so much for stopping by and I will talk to you soon.

    Hi Scott,
    Thank you so much for your review and additional posts. I had an interview scheduled for tomorrow morning and decided to do a Google search on my own to see what the company was about. I am so glad I found your review site and all the comments posted. My husband owned his own company for 13 yrs. and is a successful salesman. I never was. I was the detail person who kept his books. When the woman told me there would be “no cold calling” and that I would be provided leads, I thought maybe I could do that. Then I read all this……She was selling me and I don’t like it. I responded to the Stay At Home Mom comment because I found myself most like her…..I hate it when a person tells you something and then you are expected to read between the lines. Also, I want to thank you so much for sending me to Wealthy Affiliate site which is free. I joined and will see where it takes me. I need to make some income to pay our house off. My husband & I are in another business where we are on the road a lot so I need to do something online. All the best to you…..Sharon

      Hi Sharon,
      I’m glad this review has helped you out and saved you from joining Ameriplan and wasting your time with them. I would avoid them and not get mixed up with them because you will regret it. Anyone who lies to you the first time they speak with you is up to no good.If they can’t be up front and honest with you from the get go they can’t be trusted.

      With all your business experience from when your husband had his own company I think this will speed things up for you some at Wealthy affiliate. I’m glad that I was able to lead you to Wealthy Affiliate and I hope you are enjoying your first day there. If you need any help getting started please let me know and I would love to help you out.

      If you really work hard at this you will start to see some really awesome results and I am looking forward to working with you. Thanks for stopping by Sharon and sharing your Ameriplan story with everyone here I know I have enjoyed it and I’m sure everyone else will too.

    Yes Ameriplan might have downsized but any major company does the exact same thing in a down economy. When you go into working for a network marketing company you have to cover all your bases. If your making good money you need to be reinvesting somewhere outside of your primary company. Unfortunately nothing is for sure these days. That is how the rich stay rich. Yes it would suck to have to start over, but in the network marketing industry you need to be always improving yourself and be ready for the next thing in life. Books tapes people is a daily thing. The problem is people get complacent and want to be employees. It is in the contract that involuntary termination could happen. Sad but true. Anyway I like your website and thanks for the information on Wealthy Affiliate, I will be opening up an account today. Take care and God Bless…

    February 25, 2014 at 1:56 pm
    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Rob,
      Yes I understand that you will need to have all your bases covered whenever you get involved with any network marketing company or any company for that matter. I agree that investing your money into something outside of your primary business would be a good idea if you are making some really good money. I just feel for all those people who got terminated after they started making really good money because that would really suck.

      Especially the dude below who said he lost over 90 K a year when he got terminated. The thing I love about Wealthy Affiliate is that they teach you how to setup a business that you own. You are in control and you can’t get terminated under no contract.I was with Ameriplan for only 2 months and I’m glad that I got out when I did and that I found WA.

      I’m glad that you like my website, and I would love to help you get your very own online business started. I just know you are going to love it at WA and if you ever need my help with anything please let me know Rob and I would love to help you out.

      • David says:

        Scott you’re an idiot. I’m so glad you “got out” before you went under. It’s amazing that people like you can even make it from day to day without hurting yourself. You say you were not trained. If you really were an IBO then you would know what “back office” means. All kinds of training are listed there for you to educate yourself. Did you ever ask your sponsor for help or training? Did you call customer service at corporate for help? Yes Ameriplan is not for everyone and especially people like you who only know how to complain. So what did you think when you signed up that you wouldn’t have to talk to anyone and somehow you would be rich? I guess in your new business all you have to do is sit around and watch people come to you and without any talking from you they sign up. Because you said you don’t like talking to strangers. Well big shot when you make it to the top I guess I’ll buy your book on how to be successful without ever talking to or dealing with strangers.

        March 9, 2014 at 4:30 am
        • Scott Newkirk says:

          Hi David,
          I have no problem whatsoever talking to people in the business I’m in now. As a matter of fact I talk to people everyday and show them how easy it is to get started for free and make good money online. When I said I wasn’t trained I was referring to how to sell the healthcare plans. The main focus was on how to recruit other people into the company and get them to sign up under you.

          I called my sponsor up almost everyday and asked her how to do stuff and I attended the training calls every week as well. The thing that I wasn’t OK with was the fact that the main way to market this business was through cold calling. As I mentioned above I am not much of a telephone person and I don’t like calling up strangers and trying to sell them something and there are lots of other people who are not good at this either.

          Not to mention the fact that once you get a pretty good income built up Ameriplan will terminate you under a no cause contract. Check out the comment from Laurel Livezey below where he tells the story of how his friend lost over 90 K a year after Ameriplan terminated him. That’s a lot of money to lose and If that’s not enough to turn you off from this company then I don’t know what to tell you.

          I wrote this review to share my personal experience with everyone here and to give my honest opinion as to whether or not I would recommend this opportunity or not. In any business it takes lots of hard work if you want to be successful at it or not.

          Obviously you must be making money with them and I’m glad for you. I would just be careful and try and invest your money different places so you don’t get screwed when they terminate you. I would rather start up a business where I’m in control and where I can grow my income as much as I want without worrying about the company terminating me for no reason.

          Wealthy Affiliate can show you how to do this and the best part about it is you can get started risk free and you can check out everything they have to offer without paying anything.Thanks for stopping by David and commenting on this and I hope you have a very prosperous 2014.

          David many people who do well in customer service don’t do well in phone sales.Unless its qualified leads.Its the nature of the pitch and the lack of interaction.Its also more likely that the individual selling doesn’t/hasn’t used the product or service.

      They’re ingenious…. they keep you there till you got a nice base of customers responsible customers that have it directly taken out of their accounts every month… generating them an enormous amount of revenue… and then boom! your fired….and they just made 90,000 more for the year….

        Hi Concetta,
        I agree with you that they wait till you build up your income pretty high then they really give it to you. I still don’t know how they can get by with this but they have done it to quit a few people. Personally, I would rather build up a business that I own and that I can control everything that happens in it.

        This way I don’t have to worry about getting fired under a no cause contract. If you would like to start up your own online business and would like to know how you can get started for FREE you should definitely check out Wealthy Affiliate.They are the reason why I have been so successful online and I owe everything to them.

        I will be there to help you out every step of the way and show you how to build an income up for yourself and not have to worry about getting fired after you get it built up so much.I will also be there if you have any questions about getting started and what your first steps will be.

        I’m glad this review has helped you out Concetta and saved you a lot of stress. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I get the chance to work with you and help you setup an online empire that you are in control of.

  • Greg At Home Dad says:

    I do agree that Ameriplan is scheme in its own. Maybe not a scam, but a way to get money from people that don’t know what they are doing. But that’s pretty much any “stay at home” work. Scott, you advertise WA a lot but that site isn’t any better at helping people make money at home. Yeah the sign up is free and there is a free boot camp and a few lessons, but there is still constant upsale on that site and non of the basic lessons make any sense. Also, the most important parts of the site are only a trial until you upgrade to the paid membership. You can’t even get anymore help or advice without paying. There’s no way to make money for free. So could you think of a different to site to advertise for because just giving us that one site is not helping. Especially when that site is just trying to get money like the other sites.

    February 15, 2014 at 6:50 am
    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Greg,
      If you think about all the thousands of people that Ameriplan has terminated after they have worked their butts off to build up their income and grow their businesses I would say that they are a scheme. I’m sorry but I have to disagree with you about the way you feel about WA.They have helped me in so many ways learn how to truly make money from home and I owe everything to them.

      There is absolutely NO up sells at Wealthy Affiliate once you join premium which is totally optional and this is 100% up to you whenever you are ready. You get 7 days of Free access to the help and support of not only the entire community but Kyle and Carson will personally help you out and answer any questions you may have.

      The first course that you have access to as a free member is full of valuable information and there have been quite a few people who have made money from the free lessons offered at WA. There is also no trial whatsoever and you can remain a FREE member for as long as you wish. You will be able to continue to work on your 2 free websites as well as be able to go over the training course that you are given to start out with as a free member.

      Just to show you that I am not just saying this check out some of the testimonials from people who have went through the course on the free level and see what they had to say about it.

      I think what they are offering for Free is more then what you would get anywhere else if you was a paying member. I really think that you should give WA a second chance because it is helping people everyday become very successful online. I understand if you are not ready to make a commitment or at least give it a try. The only other place that I could recommend besides WA is IMPHO. You won’t get nearly as much training or help and support there but it’s my #2 pick.

      Thanks for stopping by Greg and I hope that I was able to help you out.

      What I like about Wealthy Affiliate is that it teaches you how to build an on-line business that you own. Instead of just having a job (at home), helping someone else to build their business.

      Now if you know of a Magical site where I don’t have to do any work or put in any effort, and the money will just rush in like I can’t spend it fast enough, and everything is free, free, free! Please let me know, so I can share it with Greg At Home Dad. LOL

      • Scott Newkirk says:

        I have got to agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate shows you how to build up something that you own. You will never have to worry about being terminated after building up your business and your income. WA gives you so much more then a job at home. They have literately changed my life for the better, and I can’t thank them enough.

        If you want it bad enough you will experience success through plenty of hard work. Nothing that is worthwhile in life is free. If all people is looking for is a free way to make money then they aren’t really serious about starting an online business. There will always be fees of some kind that is required to run a successful business.

        Unfortunately there is no magical site out there that will spit out money at you for little to no work on your part. That is how so many people fall for scams these days because people believe this nonsense and the scammers out there are cashing in on this.

I have had Carson personally help me on several occasions and he gets back to you very quickly when you email him. The lessons, I feel are simple to understand if you have a small amount of computer knowledge. I have gone through the first two courses in just a few weeks, have my website up and running and being indexed on Google and have a few affiliate programs I am working with. Just a little effort goes a long way and WA is a God send for me.

  • phil says:

    For what it is worth, I am a salesman by nature, well, I certainly developed the knack at the young age of 14. I started out selling all types of things from cleaning products to newspaper subscriptions. I later when on to selling office equipment, advertising, swimming pools, med response equipment and over the past 26 years home improvements for myself.

    But during slow times I would always look to supplement my income with sales. Now from all my experience I would say that the method with which you produce your sales is major. Cold calling will burn out the most seasoned veteran. the successful marketers have those interested calling them. this difference is huge, just in the time efficiency factor alone. Cold calling is for the birds, if you don’t have a method by where people will call you then you will be doing a lot of wheel spinning.

    I also responded to the Ameriplan sales ad because I recently had a decline in my health due to a life threatening injury a year and a half ago. I did my best to return to my business but now really need something I can do from home. This sounded so good because it was everything I needed and with my experience in sales felt very confident in taking on the position of their representative. But after thankfully reading these comments it has saved me the anguish that would certainly befall me in the future.

    This termination of their hard working employees is a down right slap in the face and I would have gone on a crusade to put them out of business and exposed the corrupt judge who delivered such a verdict. its a real crime that justice cannot be served in today’s society, I hope all of you find your way and enjoy all of the success you deserve. sincerely yours, Phil R.

      Hi Phil,
      I am so glad that you found my review before you got involved with this company. They have done this quite a few times. It sounds like 1 big layoff without notice. I am so glad that I was only with this company for 2 months. I just didn’t like the idea of calling up complete strangers on the phone and try and sell them discount health plans. First of all I’m not a telephone person, and after I found out that was the main way to run this business I was out.

      I have to agree with you Phil that if they would have done that to me I would have done everything I could to put them out of business. I would also see to it that I exposed the crooked judge for not doing anything about it. It is downright wrong for a company to do this to their IBOs and something should be done about it.

      It sounds like you have a pretty awesome background in the sales field and I think that’s awesome.

  • Laurel Livezey says:

    Wow, I can’t say anything good about this company because of what they did to my friend. I was involved for a number of years as well but I did not work it enough to make money and finally quite. But my friend. The one who got me into it was royally, royally screwed. He worked it for possible as long as 10 years. It was a long time. He was making about $90,000 per year. He had tons and tons of people working under him. It took him awhile to do it, but once it was rolling it was rolling…………He was very happy with this company and continued to press me to ” really work it”. I just want not as comfortable on the phones as he was. Anyway to make a long story short. They did terminate him. On Valentines day. They also terminated about 600 or more other people that Bob knew or had signed up. It was like somekind of massive layoff. He lost everything he had. He had bought homes for investment properties. He lost all of those. One by one. He lost his $90,000 per year income all at once. It was just horrible. He went to court, filed a lawsuit. It was a class action lawsuit. I thought for sure he would win it. He did not win it. Even though it was clearly unfair. The Judge just didn’t really get it I guess. So my friend lost almost everything he had because of this company. And he had spent literally years building up his client base and broker base. Don’t trust those twins at all. They don’t even get along with their own kids. It was devastating to him, it ruined him.

    February 7, 2014 at 1:24 pm
    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Laurel,
      I am so sorry to hear about this and my heart goes out to your friend. I have talked to several other people who told me the same thing happened to them. I don’t think they was making that much money, but they were doing really well for themselves. They were terminated under a no cause contract. This basically means that they can terminate you at any time and for any reason. I couldn’t even begin to imagine what he went through and it makes me sick to even think about it. I don’t see how they can get away with it and win the lawsuit.

      If something like that would ever happen to me I think it would take me a long time to get over it.I was only with Ameriplan for 2 months because I’m not a telephone person at all. I hated it that I had to call up a complete stranger and try and sell them a discount health plan. After about 10-15 people hung up on me I was done.

      That is when I was introduced to Internet marketing and I absolutely love it. I am now in control of my own business and nobody can terminate me. I know that sometimes we all need a fresh start, and I would like to help you and your friend get back on track with your own online business. Does that sound good? I would suggest that you check out internet marketing for yourself and join an awesome community that is 100% FREE to get started.

      If you have any questions I will be there to help you out every step of the way. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing this story with everyone here.

  • Chalotte says:

    The company line to the hundreds of afiliates who were terminated without cause was that they had not worked their business for three months or more. That is NOT true. I was working my biz full time until the day I was terminated. I know many others who were terminated who told me that they too were working.

    The real reason? Those who were not bringing in enough new business every month to cover their own residuals was terminated. So, we built up our residuals, only for them to be taken from us.

    February 1, 2014 at 2:27 pm
    • Scott Newkirk says:

      Hi Chalotte,
      Ameriplan seems like a shady company to work for! Even though there are many people out there that is making money from it. It seems too risky to work your butt off and build up lots of residual income, only have it taken away from you. I’m sorry to hear about this, and it makes me mad that a company would do that to someone who has worked so hard for them.

      Instead of being rewarded for your hard work you get terminated. I guess you wasn’t making them enough money so they got rid of you. If you are thinking that there isn’t no legit companies out there, well I want you to think again. If you are looking for a place where you truly can get your own online business started, then I would encourage you to check out Wealthy affiliate.

      You can get started for Free and get 2 FREE websites when you join. As well as have access to your first training course plus so much more that I can’t even tell you about all of it. You will be building a business that YOU are in control of not someone else that could terminate you at any time for no reason.

      If you need my help getting started or have any questions, I would love to answer them for you and help you out. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your experience with Ameriplan with everyone here. It will help people out and save them some time and money.

        I understand what you are saying. Lots of people think that Ameriplan is a scam! I have heard some pretty bad things from ex members about what they do to you after you have built up a pretty good income with them. I just think that you need to work the business and give it a fair shot before you go screaming SCAM like you have said.

        Ray could have had a bad experience with them and that could be why he thinks it’s a scam. I take it from your comment that you are with Ameriplan and I hope you are having lots of success with them. I want to thank you for dropping by and adding to this discussion.

          No I never worked for them.I thought they were a scam.I contacted them about there offer.After a few[3 to be exact]emails the scam revealed itself.Sorry but mlm to me is a scam.It requires you to sign up others for your cash.Requiring more and more clients to earn your money.What about that isn’t a scam?If it were a added bonus for x number of clients or even a bonus for keeping returning clients I might say legitimate.Plus it costs you whether you have clients or not.This is one hall mark of a scam.Most legitimate companies don’t charge unless the sub has a large client base.

            Hi Sunny,
            I actually was a member of Ameriplan for like 2 months and after I saw how you had to market the program I wasn’t interested. Ameriplan is your typical MLM pyramid scheme where you have to try and sign up as many IBO’s under you as possible. They do have their various discounted health care plans but as I have stated above there wasn’t any actual training on how to market this.

            I have to agree with you about Ameriplan being a scam. If you read some of the comments from previous members of Ameriplan below you will see that this is NOT a program you want to get involved with. If you are looking for a way to make money online without worrying about being scammed, I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate. I have been with this company for going on 2 years now, and In that time I have been able to make a full time living from home.

            I would love to help you out and show you how to do the same thing. You can get started for FREE and check out everything they have to offer. I will be there to answer any questions you may have and get you started down the right path to making money online.. I really am looking forward to working with you Sunny and thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your experience with Ameriplan with everyone here.

            If you have any questions or need my help please let me know.
            Talk to you soon

    Hey, I was thinking about joining Ameriplan but things just didn’t add up to me. First off they told me there would be no cold calling involved and they were not the type of company that aggravates people. However after reading your post it seems like they lied about that. I am a stay at home mom that is looking for a work from home job that doesn’t require any telemarketing bull crap like that. Alot of things just didn’t add up to me 1 thing being why is it that I have to buy a plan to work for them when I already have insurance. 2nd thing being they say on there site that they offer direct deposit but yet when I talked to the woman the other day she told me I could not get direct deposit until I became a Senior Regional Sales Director, that I would receive a check in the mail. Now I am not sure about anybody else but that does not add up to me nor make me feel to confident about joining the company. Does anybody know of a good work from home job that you do not have to PAY to work for and that pays decent?

      Hi There,
      When I first joined Ameriplan I was excited and I was hoping it was the real deal. Not too long after I joined I was having second thoughts about it. The main thing that turned me off about Ameriplan was the cold calling. I’m not much of a telephone person, so I didn’t like the idea of having to call up complete strangers and try to sell them an healthcare discount plan. Anyone that doesn’t let you try their product first without paying for it must not believe in it very much.

      I remember they told me the same thing about direct deposit and I think it does sound fishy. I would love to help you out here and show you how to work from home and get started for FREE. After I quit Ameriplan I found Wealthy Affiliate and thanks to them I have been able to work from home and make some really good money.I would open your Free account and fill out your profile completely and then get started on your first training lesson.

      I will be there to help you if you have any questions or need my help. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your experience with Ameriplan with everyone and I’m hope you didn’t lose any money with them. If you have anymore questions let me know and I would love to answer them for you.

      To Concerned Stay At Home Mom : I am so glad you posted this comment. I found Ameriplan on Craigslist and sent them an e-mail. I was contacted by phone and set up the interview for tomorrow. I thought I’d do some Google research on the company first. After reading your comment and all the ones above I now know this is not for me. She told me the same thing about no cold calling. I also looked at the provider list for my area and there was only 1 or 2 in a 50 mile radius. It sounds so much like a pyramid scheme also. Thanks, Sharon Z.

        Hello again Sharon,
        This isn’t concerned stay at home mom but I would like to chime in here and add to this discussion. If someone is going to lie to you right away and try to mislead you into believing a bunch of crap I wouldn’t want to start a business partnership up with them. When I was with Ameriplan I had the same problem with finding people who accepted their discount plans. There was only 1 provider in my area that would accept them so it really wasn’t worth my time.

        They operate just like a pyramid scheme and that’s what I hate the most about them. Thanks again Sharon for stopping by and if you need any help let me know.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I stumbled upon an ad for Ameriplan a few weeks ago, requested the phone interview, got the call, then learned about the upfront cost. I was, of course, immediately skeptical & said I’d take some time to think about it. I did a little research & found that seemingly it was a legitimate job opportunity, but just wasn’t convinced either way. After reading this article, I’m glad to know it isn’t a scam & to understand how the company works. After having the thought “maybe I should try it” in the back of my mind for a few weeks, I now know for sure this isn’t for me. It’s nice to quiet that thought for good!
    I actually stumbled on Wealthy Affiliate, as well! I started on that, but I’ve been ignoring it. You’ve encouraged me to give it a good solid effort now. Thanks again, Scott!

      Hi Avery, I was in Ameriplan for a couple of months and I gave it a try. I found out after about a little over a month of being in it that it wasn’t for me. I’m not really the kind of person who loves talking on the phone especially to complete strangers and try to sell them something. I hate cold calling and that is about the main way that this business works. I’m glad that you didn’t join because the start up fees aren’t cheap. There are some people who can make lots of money with them but I would rather be doing something else.

      It’s great that you have joined Wealthy Affiliate and you should really start working on doing that because it is the only real opportunity that I have ever found. I would encourage anyone to join for FREE and get started on building your business and take charge of your life. It’s great that I was able to clear your mind about joining Ameriplan for good.

      Thanks for stopping by Avery and sharing your thoughts about Ameriplan with everyone and if I can help you out in any way or if you have any questions please let me know.

    Thank you Scott!
    You’ve been extremely helpful. I just ran into their add and decided to do some research when I fortunately saw your page.
    I’m extremely skeptical when a “JOB” involves any up-front payment but there are times when I just can’t help but telling myself “NO PAIN, NO GAME” and I might have just considered Ameriplan. But after reading your posts and many others and educating myself, I have a way better understanding of what their company is about, know and understand how someone can be extremely successful and happy with this company while others filled with anger and disgust. SALES are not made for everyone and it definitely ain’t for me :)
    I thought your way of expressing your opinion was absolute kind, professional and detailed for which again I thank you very much. It seams as if it was meant to help and inform others which is much to be appreciated.
    As for Amber’s comment:
    the world is not just about you!
    I trust you enjoy sales as well as the benefits but learn to accept that we are all so different and what you consider not being a scam for your own life, might have ruined other people’s. What you love, others can despite. It’s an opinion, and we all have the right to one.
    Plus…. Let’s face it:
    SCAM = a stratagem for gain; a swindle
    SCAM = A fraudulent business scheme
    SCAM = a dishonest scheme
    We live in a world full of scams !
    And Ameriplan is most certainly one of them!

      Hi Claudia, I’m glad that you found my review of Ameriplan helpful and that you was able to make a sound decision as to whether or not this company was for you or not. When I joined them back in 2012 I didn’t do my research on them like I probably should have. I just clicked on an ad for them and after a representative from the company called me I joined right away. This was a bad move, but they always say everything happens for a reason. I was with them for 2 months and I hated the idea of having to call up complete strangers on the phone and try to sell them something. As I have mentioned in my review I am no salesman and I hate talking on the phone especially to complete strangers.

      I never said Ameriplan was a scam but some of the stories I have heard from former members of this company doesn’t sound very good at all. I don’t feel right in recommending this company to others because there is too much risk involved. As for Amber’s comment everyone is entitled to their opinion and I’m sure that she is probably doing very well with them. As with any MLM company some people do well, while others don’t. I am just glad that I could steer you away from them and save you some money at the same time Claudia.

      If you are looking for a way to make some real money online that doesn’t involve sales or cold calling and is 100% FREE to get started I would highly recommend you check out Wealthy Affiliate. I have been with them for a year and a half now and I have made some pretty good money in that time. There is absolutely no risk involved and you can get training on how to setup your very own online business. I will also be there to help you every step of the way if you have any questions or need any help. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment I really appreciate it. Cheers Your Friend Scott

    Ameriplan is not a scam! If you have a good upline that will assist you and you are willing to put forth the effort, you can succeed. There are a tremendous amount of training videos and weekly conference calls. I not only enjoy working from home but my ameriplan health discounts have saved me over $4,000 in a matter of months.

      Hello Amber, I’m glad that you are having success with Ameriplan and Congratulations on saving all that money with their health care packages. As I mentioned in my review above Ameriplan is not for everyone, If you enjoy talking on the phone and cold calling then this opportunity will fit you well. I joined them and after 2 months I decided that this was not the right business for me and I’m sure many other people feel the same way as I do.

      I never said it was a scam, but I have talked to many people who was in Ameriplan for 4 or 5 years and they worked really hard at building up their business, and the company terminated them under a no cause contract. As a friendly warning to you or anyone I would just be very careful because this could happen to you as well. I wish you all the luck in the world with your business and I hope you continue to experience success. Thanks for stopping by Amber and leaving your feedback on this review.
