AMS TRICARE Prime Super+Supplement Plan
So many users of the TRICARE Prime option told us they were worried about how fast their co-payments for medical care mounted up that AMS decided to introduce a “super” supplement, not only to pay all the usual “in-network” co-payments but also to pay all “out-of-network” co-payments!

This AMS Super+Supplement doesn’t stop there, either. It even saves Members a great deal on all dental, vision, and hearing care as well! AMS TRICARE Prime Super+Supplement Plan is fully convertible to AMS TRICARE Standard Supplement for any reason whatsoever, should your needs change, with no further preexisting conditions requirement, if coverage has been in effect 12 months or more. And, this Plan includes the Member Assistance Program (MAP). MORE INFO>>

AMS Long-Term Care Insurance Plan
“More than 50% of Americans are expected to need some form of long term care, either home care or institutional care, at some point in their lives, according to the Health Insurance Association of America.”

As life expectancies increase, there is a greater chance that people will require long term care. Such care is provided when someone can no longer independently carry out essential everyday activities like eating, bathing, dressing, etc. Most people think of long-term care as something needed by older people, but accident or illness can strike someone of any age. When it does, they too may find themselves in need of assistance. People tend to think they will never need long term care. Unfortunately when they do need it, they are not prepared. With long term care insurance you can take control and be prepared. MORE INFO>>

AMS Cancer Protector Plan
Modern medical treatments may be saving lives, but the cost of these life-saving procedures is incredibly high! AMS sponsors a Plan to help cover these costs. Members and eligible family dependents are guaranteed acceptance, if no cancer has been diagnosed in the last 10 years. The Plan pays in-hospital or out-of hospital benefits, up to $6,000 a month extended benefits, optional hospital confinement benefits, survivor benefits…and much more. There are no age limits for Member or Spouse. And, payments go to you!

AMS Dental Plan
With this Plan, you can continue to use your own dentist and still be covered for routine cleanings, preventive care, and almost every form of dental treatment. Members and eligible family dependents are guaranteed acceptance at low group rates!

AMS Members should be extremely pleased to learn that they still have a better deal with the AMS Dental Plan compared to the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program. The AMS Dental Plan is more affordable for almost every Member and their dependents. Along with the AMS Dental Plan being less costly, there are also some other very significant differences in the two programs. For example, the AMS Plan costs the same for Members and their families regardless of where you live while the premium rates for TRDP fluctuates according to your home zip code. Also, enrollment in the AMS Plan is month-to-month while enrollees in the TRDP must commit to an initial enrollment period of 12-months. We encourage you compare and see how much you can save by enrolling in the AMS Dental Plan.
