Why Choose Essence?

Many things make Essence Healthcare stand out from the crowd. Here are just a few of the many things our members appreciate about Essence.

All-in-One Coverage: We combine hospital, medical and prescription drug coverage together into one simple plan with fair, predictable co-pays that can make it easier to budget for the doctor visits, hospital care and prescription drugs you need to stay healthy.

Local Design and Direction: We believe a local approach to health insurance gives our members the best possible health care experience. That’s why we’ve partnered with doctors right here in the local community to help us design our benefits and direct our operations.

Personal Customer Service: Good customer service is good common sense, but it’s not always common practice. Personal service is a top priority at Essence, and our well-trained team is eager to help you make the most of your Essence plan.

So far, we’ve talked about the Original Medicare Plan and discussed some of the ways that people can add, supplement or expand upon what it offers. We also told you a little more about our company and our approach to health insurance. In the next section, we’ll explain when and how you can join one of our health plans.
