A health insurance comparison site, HealthCompare, is aiming to help American consumers learn how to buy health insurance.
Orange, CA (PRWEB) April 28, 2012
As health insurance shoppers continue to look for answers to their questions and solutions to their problems, they are looking to HealthCompare's easy to read infographics to find them.
Infographics are a growing online trend for a reason. They are beautiful and ideal for delivering difficult information in simple to understand tidbits. These graphics come in an array of styles, all designed to layout data results, theories, or arguments in a visual manner.
Infographics that are well done and comprehensive take complex statistics with tons of information and simplify the concept so they are easily understood by the layperson. HealthCompare understands this, and has launched a series of infographics designed to help health insurance shoppers and buyers wade through all the reports without getting lost.
HealthCompare is aiming to help American consumers learn how to buy medical coverage. From gathering information from small families with young children to mature parents with college-aged kids, these infographics illustrate a painful truth in an easy-to-understand layout.
The 5 infographics in this series include:
Is Affordable Medical Coverage Out There? - Designed to help consumers find out if affordable medical coverage is a myth or, in fact, available
3 Ways To Get Affordable Medical Insurance - Designed to help consumers discover their most affordable medical insurances available to them
Pros and Cons of Individual PPO Health Insurance - Designed to educate consumers on what PPOs are and who they are good for
Get Individual Health Insurance Quotes Today - Designed to teach consumers the right way to get individual health insurance quotes

When shopping for health insurance, visitors to the HealthCompare site are asked to pose questions to themselves prior to making any decisions. These questions are generated to help make the health insurance shopping experience easier, faster, and less stressful. Consumers should ask themselves the following:
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.
