I have moved over to EssentialMED exactly one year ago… and have never looked back since!! Once again THANK YOU!....and please be assured of our continuous and loyal support!
I have been using Essential for years and i have never had a problem. The consultants are always friendly and even call the hospital ahead of me getting there in an emergency and my bills are never an issue so I am a very proud member. Well done as always Essential team u guys rock!
I can recommend EssentialMED to everyone, there service is excellent! I did my application online and I had a very quick response . Bradford helped me and I have not had such amazing service in a long time. I give them 5 stars and I will promote EssentialMED everywhere!
My experience with EssentialMED has been very positive. I think the trick is to research in order to manage expectations and be patient when it comes to the reimbursements. This is not a medical aid, but from the promises they have made for a health insurance they have pulled through. Chantelle & Zelda their consultants are always helpful. So touch wood!! I'm happy with my choice... Good alternative for those who can afford medical aid.
I wish to commend you on the manner in which you have assisted my with my decision to become a member of Essential Health. Your prompt replies and the professional, polite way you dealt with me is honourable. There are many call centre consultants who could learn from you. You took the time to read what i had written and responded accordingly. WELL DONE !
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 clicks pharmacist to prescribe a generic or alternative on the list , absolutely no issues.
I would like to extend accolades and great thankfulness to Clayton. He is always ever-willing to assist unconditionally, and his disposition and friendly manner truly makes me feel very proud to be an EssentialMED policy holder for my father. Clayton is truly an ambassador of exceptional service delivery, and his passion for service is truly reflected in all my encounters with him. Keep up the GREAT service - individuals like you are very hard to find, and EssentialMED should be very honored to have you as an employee. Thank you so very much for everything you do for me as a client.
I'm on EssentialMED and I'm really happy with the medical insurance, as I'm typing this message I'm in hospital at Flora Clinic and receiving great care. Thanks EssentialMED.
Very satisfied with EssentialMED. 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 the paid for things our previous medical aid never covered or paid for! A HUGE Thumbs UP for you guys!
