Effective January 1, 2023, CoxHealth Network providers and facilities will no longer be contracted with Essence (CoxHealth MedicarePlus).

Effective January 1, 2023, we will be participating in the CoxHealth Medicare Advantage plan offered through Cox HealthPlans.

We know how important it is to you to keep your relationship with your CoxHealth Network provider. In order to assist you with this, we have included a list below of Medicare Advantage plans that are contracted with all of the CoxHealth providers caring for you today. You may want to consider a Medicare Advantage plan that still allows you to access CoxHealth Network Providers. By calling one of the numbers below, a licensed sales agent can provide you with information about the plans available from that company.

Please note that the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period is October 15th through December 7th.

For questions regarding plans and benefits, please call the numbers listed above or your local health insurance agent. If you have additional questions or concerns, please call the CoxHealth INFO line at 417-269-INFO or email us at
