QWhat are the Optional Packages?
A

QAre Alliance Direct Benefits just for me? Or can my family use them too?
A

The Alliance Value Plan benefits cover you and your family. The Alliance Plus Plan is available to individuals, or you can upgrade to the Family Plus Plan and share the benefits with your spouse and/or dependents. It's a great way to help provide additional savings and health care options to your whole family.

QAre Alliance Direct Benefits the same as a health insurance plan?
A

No. The Alliance is not a health insurance provider. The Alliance is a nonprofit corporation that offers dues-paying members access to insured and non-insured benefits. Thanks to our group buying power, Membership offers discounts and benefits which can help you offset the cost of healthcare and everyday expenses if you do not have insurance. And if you already have insurance coverage, Alliance Direct Benefits can help with deductibles and out-of-pocket costs.

QHow do I access my benefits?
A

You can access your benefits anywhere, anytime. Just log into our member portal from your computer or smartphone and you can access your benefits and membership info 24/7. And our member services hotline is available toll-free during business hours to assist you with any questions.

QI already have Health Insurance. Why would I join the Alliance?
A

The Alliance Direct Benefits are a great complement to many existing insurance and benefit plans. If your current insurance has a high deductible, or limited choices for services, our benefits and savings could save you significant money. Our group buying power has let us negotiate discounts for many common diagnostics such as lab work, x-rays and MRI scans. It could be cheaper to use our low discount pricing than to pay full price if you haven't met your deductible yet. Additionally, with our 24/7 physician access benefit, you can speak with a licensed physician from anywhere, even when you're traveling.

Many insurance plans these days do not include dental insurance. Our optional Dental Savings Plan benefit can help you save on nearly every dental procedure at thousands of dental practices throughout the country.

QIs the Alliance part of the Affordable Care Act?
A

No, Alliance Membership is not insurance and does not meet the conditions of the Affordable Care Act. However, Alliance Direct Benefits can be a great complement to qualified Affordable Care Act plans, offering additional ways to save and more healthcare options. Many ACA qualified plans have high deductibles, and our health care benefits can help minimize the out-of-pocket costs of many items.

The Alliance offers benefits that far outweigh the minimal monthly payment. If every individual, family or small business does not have this program, then they should.

I love Teladoc. My family uses it, it's great for things like poison ivy where you know you just need a prescription, you know what it is, and you don't need to see a doctor. The doctors are always great.
