Orange, California (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
The explosion of the ebook industry has lead HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, to release ebooks so they may educate and guide more consumers than ever.
HealthCompare began their journey toward insurance education when they began assisting website visitors with their decisions by leading them to their own answers by asking 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 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 this disconnect in the industry and chose to release infographics to help explain it further. Infographics are a graphic tool used online to illustrate complex topics in an uncomplicated fashion.
By using interesting colors and images along with corresponding data, infographics distill the essence of the topic by extracting industry language and difficult jargon. Some infographics released by HealthCompare are:
Understanding Where to Find Affordable Medical Insurance
The Right Way To Make A Health Insurance Comparisons
Why Skipping Self-Employed Health Insurance Isn’t a Good Idea
Is Low-Deductible Health Insurance A Bad Thing
Other infographics by the national health insurance leader can be found here.
Reaching the most consumers possible has always been a target for HealthCompare. That’s why they chose to continue their efforts toward education through ebooks. With more Americans than ever reading again because of the portability and affordability of these kinds of books.
The titles released by HealthCompare will be lifestyle titles designed to encourage, inspire, and motivate consumers in all stages of life, from college to new parenthood and beyond.
The books will be released weekly beginning in August.
