I would like to thank you for all your assistance in helping to get my claim processed. I am highly impressed with your professional approach to all my drama with the procedure I had done, your kindness and helpfulness during this period has been greatly appreciated.

Very satisfied with Essential Med. We have our 2 daughters on their insurance, and it has been blissful so far. Took my youngest to a network doctor without any hassles, and they paid for things our previous medical aid never covered or paid for! A HUGE Thumbs UP for you guys!

You are a great asset to your company, your response time to my mails has been amazing, every problem I had you resolved for me so quickly, never once got fed up with my numerous mails to you, everything I asked you responded to, never once left me uncertain as to the outcome.

Happy client , extremely happy with the doctors associated , encountered no issues and we go to the doctors a lot , meds are covered have never paid , always ask the doctor to prescribe according to the formulary or alternatively ask your pharmacist to prescribe a generic or alternative on the list , absolutely no issues.
