Membership with Alliance for Affordable Services (Alliance) provides access to insured and non-insured benefits in exchange for payment of dues to the association. Alliance does not market or issue health insurance or any other insurance and Alliance membership is not an insurance contract. Health benefits available among the Alliance benefit packages such as but not limited to dental, prescription drugs, accident or illness payments, health and life insurance payments are issued by third party providers and are subject to the terms and conditions of such third party providers.
Alliance benefits are available to all members but they may vary based upon membership level, package option, or member's state of residence and are subject to change. Certain limitations, reductions and exclusions may apply. Benefit providers reserve the right to withdraw or change their offers without notice. Benefit descriptions are taken from the benefit providers' marketing materials and members should carefully examine benefit information before choosing any benefit. Alliance makes no affirmation of fact or promise relating to the goods, services or benefits and specifically disclaims any warranty, expressed or implied, as to the merchantability of the goods, services or benefits or their suitability for the purposes desired or expected by member electing such benefit. To be entitled to Alliance benefits, you must be a member in good standing and payment of dues must be current.
