What is AFHS?
AFHS is a dental discount program – an affordable and easy-to-use alternative to dental insurance. Members have access to a network of more than 20,000 AFHS dentists that have agreed to offer their services at a pre-negotiated discounted price.
Is AFHS dental insurance?
No, AFHS is a dental discount program that can very simply reduce a family’s dental bills up to 60%. Members pay their dentist directly at time of service and enjoy a pre-negotiated rate that is 20-60 percent lower than customary charges. Unlike insurance, there is no required paperwork, no deductibles, no annual limits and no exclusions. You pick. You pay. You save.
You mean if my current dentist tells me I require costly treatment, like a new crown or extraction, I can join AFHS and immediately cut my costs? Yes. You simply pick a dentist or specialist in our vast network, confirm your AFHS Discount when making appointment , and then pay the pre-negotiated rate at time of service. It’s that simple.
What dental services are covered?
AFHS discounts virtually any dental treatment, including routine exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, x-rays, dentures, extractions, teeth whitening and braces.
What other benefits do AFHS members enjoy?
AFHS cures more than dental costs! Members enjoy deep discounts on vision care, prescriptions, lab work, MRI and CT scans and even hearing. AFHS Discount is good at more than 60,000 health providers across the country.
