We’ve Got You Covered from Head to Toe

In addition to comprehensive hospital, medical and prescription drug coverage, Essence also includes many valuable extras not offered by Original Medicare or Medicare supplements for no additional premium – just another way of helping you stay healthy while protecting your savings.

Many times, the cost of healthcare can be a major barrier to good health, particularly for Medicare beneficiaries who may be dealing with diabetes. Diabetes is one of the most common chronic conditions among adults, and the cost of testing supplies, insulin, treatment, and other necessities to effectively manage diabetes can quickly add up. To combat this problem, Essence Healthcare has added a unique new suite of benefits and cost savings designed to significantly reduce out-of-pocket costs and help better manage Diabetic patients’ conditions.

Our Diabetic benefits package includes:

  1. $0 copays for insulin (including Humulin, Novolin, Novolog, Tresiba, Lantus, and others. See our 2021 Drug Formulary for details)
  2. $0 copays for diabetic supplies
  3. $0 copays for diabetic eye exams
  4. $0 copays for diabetes self-management training
  5. Generous allowances for important Over-The-Counter items such as vitamins, rubbing alcohol, foot cream and more

The costs for eyeglasses, contacts and eye exams can really add up. To help you manage these costs, we include additional coverage for these items. This is important coverage not offered by Original Medicare or Medicare supplements.

Healthy teeth and gums play an important role in your overall health, but dental care can be expensive. That’s why we include preventive dental coverage with Essence for no additional premium. One of our plan options also includes comprehensive dental coverage for no additional premium.

Staying active can help you live your life to its fullest. That’s why Essence partners with SilverSneakers to give you free access to participating health clubs and a host of different fitness classes for any fitness level. Whether you are an active gym member or just getting started, we know you will appreciate this great added benefit.

Regular visits to the doctor are extremely important to maintaining your health, so we never want transportation issues to prevent you from seeing your doctor. Because of this, Essence includes transportation assistance to and from doctors and authorized medical facilities at no additional cost to you.

Whether you are making a trip out of state or out of the country, Essence has you covered. If you ever get sick or injured when away from home, you can rest easy knowing you have emergency or urgent care coverage.

As we age, some of us may develop hearing-related needs. Because the cost of hearing aids can be overwhelming, two of our plan options provide additional coverage for hearing aids.
