Texas Association of Realtors adds Health Care Cost Reducing Benefits

Real Estate Agent with Turner Residential

Plans cost $49.95 a month for individuals and $59.95 for families. AmeriPlan can help REALTORS® and their families save from 20 to 80 percent on medical expenses. TAR has arranged to rebate the $30 member registration fee.

The Texas Association of Realtors has teamed up with AMeriplan. I personally have used this plan for my dental "coverage" in the past. I cant say that I am thrilled about it, but I have used it. Ameriplan is not insurance, but as I understand it signing up with them allows you to get a less expensive negotioated rate for services. You still have to pay, just not as much. For my dental it was a difference of a crown costing $600, or $480. Every little bit helps!

More than 50 percent of Texas REALTORS® don't have health insurance. Health insurance in our country is hard to come by. There are many different plans to choose from, and all are getting more and more expensive. My mother is a REaltor in NJ and WITH her health insurance through her Coldwell Banker office, she still has to pay almost $600 per month in fees.

Dear Kristin,

I recently joined ActiveRain and have written a few articles on my blog that deal with purchasing health insurance which may be of some help to you.  Ameriplan is NOT health insurance as you mentioned and although it may provide great discounts for minor medical expenses, it will offer little value for the purchaser in the event of a serious illness.  Until you are able to join a large group of other realtors, you may only have the option of purchasing your own individual health plan to make sure that you have the type of coverage you need. There ARE affordable health plans, you just have to know what to look for and, more importantly, what to look out for.  If your not sure sure what options you have, in terms of buying a quality health plan, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
