Orange, California (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
Health insurance consumers can rely on HealthCompare for education when it comes to health insurance hardships. As an online comparison site, they inspire shoppers to learn as much as they can before making any decisions regarding their medical coverage.
HealthCompare urges this education on health insurance hardships with their infographics. Understanding how difficult health insurance can be to understand for shoppers, these new graphics simplify concepts that may otherwise be difficult to understand.
Infographics are aesthetically pleasing, easy to understand, and highly shareable because they take ideas that are often comprised of jargon and difficult lingo and put them in an attractive package. Scientific studies, case studies, data points and other information is often hard to understand by those that are not used to dealing with such information.
By creating infographics that are beautiful, HealthCompare insures consumers will know what lies ahead when they are shopping for health care coverage that is effective and affordable. Visitors to their website are encouraged to ask themselves this series of questions prior to making their health insurance decisions:
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 this series of infographics to help modern consumers get smarter faster.
