Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
BenefitsCafe.com, a leader in California health insurance, today announced the launch of a series of on-line videos that help people understand health insurance. Using paper cut-out cartoons, hand motions and a voice over, the videos describe complicated aspects of health insurance in a fun, entertaining, yet informative way.
Bruce Jugan, president of BenefitsCafe.com, was inspired to create the videos after seeing the work of CommonCraft.com. "Health Insurance is overly complicated. This video format is an ideal way to easily explain difficult-to-understand concepts. So, I learned how to draw cartoons; wrote a tight script; and created the videos," he said.
Many of the terms surrounding health insurance are so confusing that they might as well be written in Greek. The videos on BenefitsCafe.com make the gobbledygook comprehensible. There are a series of seven videos -- all of which are very short: between 1.5 and 2.5 minutes long. The topics include:
1) Introduction to health insurance and info on BenefitsCafe.com;
2) The difference between health insurance companies and some uniquely good aspects of health insurance in California;
3) What "in-network" means and why it's important;
4) Understanding prescription medicine benefits;
5) The difference between an HMO and a PPO;
6) Which key benefits to focus on when selecting a health insurance plan; and,
7) How to compare the best case and worst case of any medical insurance plan.
As Bruce Jugan, who narrates the videos says, "in less time than it takes to hard boil an egg, you'll learn a lot about health insurance. Let's face it, learning about health insurance and selecting a plan is usually a painful experience. It is a lot more fun if you can sit back and watch some entertaining videos."
