Five Great Reasons to Choose Community Health Choice


Great doctors and hospitals

We have one of the strongest doctor and hospital networks in Southeast Texas. Another reason it pays to go with a local plan.


Free, round-the-clock access to telehealth services

Most Community plans offer telehealth services so you can speak to a board-certified doctor using your phone, computer, or any mobile device anytime of the day or night—free of charge.


No referrals needed for specialists

A benefit most other HMOs don’t offer.


We offer wellness incentives, including 10% premium savings

If you create a My Member Account and complete a 10-question health questionnaire within 30 days of enrollment, you will receive 10% off your 2021 premiums as a wellness incentive.


We offer an all new, all virtual health plan

Our new Virtual Now Bronze plan offers unlimited online visits for zero co-pay via phone, computer, or mobile app.

You can speak with a doctor, quickly renew prescriptions, and even see a specialist any time of day or night, either at home or on the go.
