Yet, HealthCompare visualizes a new avenue of education.
Orange, California (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
HealthCompare is a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site that is noted for its compassion for American health insurance consumers. Their reputation started early on when they began to encourage visitors to their site to consider all pertinent information prior to searching for a policy that effectively covers their needs.
The questions that HealthCompare knew would benefit users the most were:
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.
This initial display of caring led HealthCompare to dive even further into their education goal. With the new evolution of infographics, they saw an opportunity to clarify all the misconceptions that surround their industry, as well, as inform today’s shoppers about the details they may miss when trying to comprehend alone the complexities of the medical coverage field.
Infographics utilize beautiful colors and aesthetically pleasing images to extract the important details from difficult ideas that are riddled with data and jargon that complicate their subject matter and order them in an easy to understand fashion. In addition to being useful, they are also highly shareable across the web.
The infographics released in this series are:
Is There Really Affordable Medical Coverage Available - Designed to help consumers find their most affordable options
Family Health Insurance Needs - Designed to help shoppers find health insurance for their families
Are Health Insurance Brokers Necessary - Created to assist consumers in deciding whether or not they need a health insurance broker
COBRA Isn’t The Only Health Insurance For Unemployed - Designed to educate the unemployed on their health insurance choices
Private Health Insurance Vs. Group Health Insurance - Educates shoppers on the difference between private and group health insurance

Yet, HealthCompare visualizes a new avenue of education. They have now announced that they will begin releasing ebooks in July that will help guide consumers through the stages of life and their health insurance needs.
The books will range in topics from college survival to new parent financial survival. HealthCompare has seen the dramatic effect that ereaders have had on consumers and hopes to extend their educational reach to those that take advantage of the portability and affordability of ebooks.
HealthCompare has demonstrated their compassion once again and continue to strive for education.
