Today’s Health Insurance Consumers Get Help Understanding Health Insurance Hardships From HealthCompare’s Infographics

Share Article

HealthCompare, a leading Health Insurance comparison site, launches a series of infographics to help Americans decipher complex data regarding health insurance.

Infographics compress and compile numbers and translated information into aesthetically pleasing arrangements that illustrate rather than tell. They also functionally layout arguments for debates, complex concepts or any other topic that could otherwise be considered difficult to understand.
Health insurance comparison company, HealthCompare, has released infographics that help make health insurance more understandable for shoppers. These unique graphics are growing in popularity across the web and are known for utilizing images and colors to help make the complex data they include from scientific reports, demographics, and studies make them more easily understood by consumers. Reports such as the ones used in studies often use jargon and unnecessary language that makes deciphering results difficult for those without the background for these terms.
These new graphics from HealthCompare explain hardships that can effect consumers when it comes to medical coverage. They are nationally recognized for caring about patient knowledge and choice. They want consumers to understand as much as possible when it comes to making decisions regarding coverage that suits their needs.

The infographics released in this series are entitled:
Health Insurance Comparisons Made Easy - designed to help making comparisons easier
Finding Affordable Health Insurance - designed to help consumers discover the most affordable health care plans on the internet
Buying Individual Health Insurance Can Be Painless - designed to lessen the stress that comes with having to shop for policies

Visitors to their page are reminded to ask themselves a series of questions before making life-altering decisions about things like insurance.

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 understands 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.
