HealthCompare urges consumers to educate themselves on health insurance hardships with their infographics.
Orange, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2012
Nationally recognized for promoting consumer education, HealthCompare, an online health insurance comparison site, seeks to help shoppers learn the right questions to ask when seeking medical coverage.
HealthCompare urges consumers to educate themselves on health insurance hardships with their infographics. These new web graphic designs are an easy way to illustrate otherwise difficult concepts. By nature, health insurance falls into that category. By taking data and information and crunching into bite size morsels, HealthCompare shows the difficulties those without insurance can face.
Infographics are beautiful to look at, easy to understand, and shareable. They are comprised of a wide array of colors, shapes, graphs and charts to easily depict concepts that are usually filled with jargon and difficult language. Scientific studies, case studies, data points and other information are often hard to understand by those that are not in their respective fields.
By designing infographics that are aesthetically pleasing, HealthCompare insures their consumers will know what lies ahead and how to find the coverage they need. Visitors to their website are encouraged to ask themselves a series of questions prior to making their health insurance decisions. The questions HealthCompare suggests shoppers answer are:
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 or parent 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 wants health insurance buyers to be informed, which is why they have designed a series of infographics to help modern consumers get smarter faster.
That’s why they designed and released this series of infographics. This weeks three include:
“What Does PPO Medical Insurance mean For My Health Insurance?” - Created to explain what the concept of PPO is for health insurance consumers
“Why Do I Need Self Employed Health Insurance?” - Created to explain why health insurance is so important for the self employed
"Why Do I Need Private Health Insurance?” - Created to explain why private health insurance is necessary
The other releases of infographics can be found here.
Using these beautifully designed infographics, consumers will understand the necessity of health insurance, the differences between types, and the correct way to make sure they are getting the best quote possible.
