Xpress Healthcare offers one of the most extensive healthcare savings programs in the nation.

With over 1 million providers in our network in all 50 of The U.S.
Ameri Plan does not.

Xpress Healthcare also covers more categories of services than Ameri Plan.

On the business building side

For me, Xpress Healthcare
was a No Brainer hands down.

You might want to post your question in the Ameriplan folder also, if you haven't already.

Hi Biz-e-Mom,

I can only speak for Xpress Healthcare. The company training is great. Everyone is very supportive and helpful. We have access to corporate trainers. The leadership team gives up their time to work with us on calls and anything else we need help with. There are many great things about Xpress...from my experience.

I can speak about both Ameriplan & Xpress Healthcare. I was with Ameriplan for 6 years. I, along with hundreds of others, left Ameriplan last February. You may want to research the mass Exodus.

I am earning more with Xpress Healthcare now after 5 months than I did in 6 YEARS with Ameriplan. I have a larger team, even without recruiting, with Xpress than I EVER did with Ameriplan. People simply come to me asking to join Xpress. I had to purchase leads and make hundreds of phone calls to get recruits with Ameriplan.

Xpress Healthcare operates in ALL 50 States, Ameriplan in 43 States. Xpress has over a million providers, while Ameriplan's provider base has been decreasing for some time.

Xpress emphasizes enrolling members in their discount health/dental plans. After all, we are a health plan company. Ameriplan mostly encourages recruiting. In Xpress, we do sign other reps to help us sell our health plans, but it is not our main focus.

Xpress encourages us to sign businesses/groups. Corporate will help us every step of the way, including closing deals for us. However, Corporate allows us to keep every penny we earn when signing a group. With Ameriplan, if corporate helps, they keep a percentage of what you earn.

Xpress has a phenomenal high-tech, but user friendly back office, where you can track your records, advertise your personalized lead capture pages, send autoresponders and do most of your training. With Ameriplan, you get a very basic back office, and you must pay extra for the autoresponders and lead capture pages.

With Xpress, we are paid for 3 tiers, ourselves, those we personally bring into the business and those they bring into the business. We get paid for all three levels upon signing our first team member. We need not "qualify" and reach certain levels as Ameriplan requires. Plus, Ameriplan has many levels, resulting in the people at the top earning most of the $$, with a few exceptions on the lower levels.

With Xpress Healthcare, their motto is People Above Profits, and they mean it! They want all of our suggestions and actually implement most of them. We are a fairly new company, and corporate wants those of us in the field to help the company grow into the best it can be. So, they listen to everyone's ideas.

At Xpress, we are paid residual commission for 3 things: our one health plan, our one dental plan and for bringing on a new team member. Simple to explain and simple to understand.

Our Executive Team is our liaison between corporate and the field reps. We can always get answers to our questions, usually within 1 hour of asking.

No one can self-enroll at Xpress' corporate site. They can with Ameriplan, therefore, taking business away from their reps.

Xpress charges no "set-up" or registration fees. Ameriplan charges $20 for their dental plan & $30 for their health plan, in addition to the first month's payment.

In my opinion, the ONLY thing that Xpress Healthcare and Ameriplan have in common is that they both sell health & dental plans.

If you research my statements, you will find that everything is factual. I am providing comparisons of the two companies. I am not bashing Ameriplan, because they serve a good purpose, helping people to access healthcare at an affordable price. I learned a great deal about network marketing while working with them. There are a lot of good people there still. Do your research, and feel free to post here again with questions.

Hi Julie,

Your post is great and very helpful. It's exactly what I needed, a side by side comparison. That really spells it out better for me, plus I know what you say is correct because I have researched both companies. You just swayed me over to Xpress. I will get back to the person that has been trying to sign me up. Thanks a bunch!

I'm glad could help. Because you took the time to really check out Xpress, I have no doubt you'll be a great ABO.

Since we have so many great leaders with Xpress, I'm sure whoever you join with will train you well.

I'm looking forward to seeing your posts telling us about your success with Xpress!

To Your Success!

Hi Beth,

I second your comment. Julie did a fantastic job in presenting both companies. Glad you chose to join Xpress with us.

Hi Beth,

I know you've made the BEST choice you see and whom ever
I think you'll hit the ball out of the park!
YOU'll LOVE XPRESS HEALTHCARE (sorry, for shouting!)
All here are very capable ABO's and you'll be in good company of some xceptional people.
all would be a great choice for a sponsor.

Wishing you much success

Mike McClurg

Thanks Julie for explaining all of this to me. I am thinking trying this would not be successful because we live in a very small town and surround by other small towns. How can I find out if we have doctors in the area and surrounding areas that participate.

Thanks!
