Why Members Choose Essence Healthcare

A Plan for Everyone

We have multiple plan types to choose from, including Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans, Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans and a Point-of-Service option (HMO-POS).
Each type of plan functions differently and is designed to help you get the most out of your Medicare coverage.

Value + Affordability

In addition to great benefits, we’re committed to delivering maximum value to members by offering comprehensive, affordable Medicare plans with low or no monthly premium, no deductibles and low, predictable copays for doctor visits, hospital stays and prescription drugs.*

More of What Makes the Right Plan

One of our goals at Essence Healthcare is to offer comprehensive coverage options to meet the unique needs of every Medicare beneficiary and we achieve this goal by offering our members more choices, more flexibility, more protection and more savings wherever possible.

Financial Protection
