Orange, California (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
In an effort to reach more and more consumers, HealthCompare aims to release ebooks beginning in July to educate consumers on the ever-changing field on health insurance. They are a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site who has made it their goal to educate consumers so they can make their most effective medical coverage decisions with confidence.
They began the road to education by asking site visitors a series of questions which, if answered honestly, would empower the shopper by giving them the details they needed to choose a policy that would be effective and affordable.
The questions they asked 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.
But HealthCompare did not stop with delving questions. They continued their path by releasing infographics. Seeing the inherent difficulty in their industry, they chose to illustrate the hardships associated with it through these graphics that extracted the essence of the topics through beautiful images and colors.
Some infographics released are:
Why Health Insurance Comparisons Are Important
Insurance For Self-Employed Isn’t Impossible

HealthCompare has now announced their intention to reach more and more consumers through the current explosion of ebooks and the self-publishing industry. With the new affordability and portability of ebooks, more Americans than ever are reading again and they choose to continue to exhibit their compassion through this new media format.
The new ebooks will address topics that consumers face in every stage of life - from college to senior citizens. The first release will be in July and will continue weekly thereafter.
