HealthCompare is nationally recognized for caring about patient knowledge and choice and want consumers to understand as much as possible when it comes to making decisions regarding policies that suits their needs.
(PRWEB) April 07, 2012
Health insurance comparison company, HealthCompare, has released graphics to make health insurance more understandable. These unique graphics are growing in popularity across the web and are known for utilizing images and colors to help make complex data from scientific reports, demographics, and studies to make them more easily understood by the casual reader. Reports such as the ones used in scientific studies often use jargon and unnecessary lanugauge that makes deciphering results difficult for those without the background for these terms. Infographics compress and compile numbers and meanings into aesthetically pleasing arrangements that illustrate rather than tell. They can also functionally layout arguments for debates, complex concepts or any other topic that might otherwise be considered difficult to understand.
HealthCompare's new graphics explain hardships that can effect consumers when it comes to medical coverage. They are nationally recognized for caring about patient knowledge and choice and want consumers to understand as much as possible when it comes to making decisions regarding policies that suits their needs.
The infographics released in this series are entitled (others can be found here):

Visitors to their page are reminded to ask themselves a series of questions before making life-altering decisions about things like insurance. These questions include:
What are the consumers current health care needs? Do they currently require medication? Does the consumer have a pre-existing condition? Or are they seeking to start a family in the near future?
Does the financial state of the shopper allow for a lower deductible, thusly giving them a higher monthly premium? Or would having a high deductible (and therefore lower monthly premium) be more beneficial?
Is the consumer’s physician a factor? If they prefer to continue seeing their doctor of choice, HealthCompare helps them decide what policies allow that.
Are there any other health insurance options for the shopper, such as spouse's or parent's plan?
Once consumers get their quotes, HealthCompare then helps them narrow their decisions by prompting them to ask further questions, like:
How much will the policies being compared cost them from their pocket when considering deductibles, co-insurance, and co-pays?
What will the policies being compared offer in terms of maximum out-of-pocket expense?
Will the consumer’s office visits be covered?
Do any of the policies up for comparison offer maternity?
Is prescription drug coverage an option?
How much will the consumer pay for emergency services and ambulances?
Will the current primary physician and local hospitals be accepted under any of the policies being considered?
Health insurance costs are much more involved than mere premiums and buyers must carefully consider all out of pocket expenses to understand what their policies will ultimately cost them.
HealthCompare sees the complexity of health insurance and the importance of informed customers, which is why they have designed these infographics to help today’s consumers make intelligent medical coverage choices.
