Nationally recognized HealthCompare takes another step in their goal to educate consumers. As a health insurance comparison site, they have developed a reputation for compassion. It began when visitors to their site were prompted to ask themselves a series of questions before searching for health insurance.
The aim of these questions was to set the consumers on the right path to finding a policy that is effective and affordable. HealthCompare understands that medical coverage is not a subject to be taken lightly. They see the need for help in understanding how the industry works and wants to make it easier for consumers to navigate and find solutions.
The questions that they ask consumers are questions like:
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 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.
That is what led them to developing the infographics that they have released. Infographics are a useful tool in conveying messages that can be difficult to comprehend. They take information from scientific data, demographics, debates, and industry reports that tend to be riddled with difficult language and jargon and reduce them to their essence.
Using beautiful images and colors, infographics depict the information in those reports and make them easily understandable by the average reader who may not be accustomed to reading the hard-to-read reports and papers.
The infographics HealthCompare has released are:
How To Find Affordable Health Insurance - Designed to help health insurance consumers find affordable health insurance
Buying Health Insurance - Designed to help today’s health insurance shopper buy health insurance online
Finding Cheap Health Insurance - Created to educate consumers on the best ways to find cheap health insurance

HealthCompare’s aim for education doesn’t stop there.
They will be releasing books, beginning in July, to help consumers better their lives and make the best decisions they can. The books will be on topics ranging from college survival to thriving as a new parent.
HealthCompare began reaching out to visitors to their site, but with new media outlets being explored, they will continue to educate and help consumers every where make the best decisions they can when it comes to health insurance.
About Health Compare: HealthCompare was launched in 2009 to work with brokers and carriers to help individuals and families easily research, compare, buy, and enroll in the right health insurance plan at the right price. Based in Orange, Calif., it delivers accurate, customized, health insurance quotes for the country's diverse population.
Through a unique partnership with its sister company, CONEXIS, HealthCompare has the ability to quickly reach thousands of COBRA-qualifying consumers and provide them with COBRA alternatives at the moment they become eligible for COBRA benefits. This provides these consumers with an opportunity to enroll in individual or family plans and potentially save hundreds to thousands of dollars on COBRA premiums and, at the same time, rewards referring brokers with referral fee income for the life of each policy.
