HealthCompare rides the wave of publishing to continue their education efforts for health insurance consumers everywhere. Nationally recognized, HealthCompare is a health insurance comparison site known for it’s compassion. Compassion that they express through education.
HealthCompare has been educating consumers since early on when they encouraged them to delve deep into their needs to know what policies will benefit them most. When shoppers landed on HealthCompare’s health insurance comparison website, they were asked to answer a series of questions that ranged from their medical history, their medical preferences, and their financial abilities. By knowing the answers to these questions, the shoppers would be able to choose a policy that would be effective for them, as opposed to a mere card in their wallet with little benefit to them.
Some of the questions they were 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.
Stepping up from the questionnaires, HealthCompare designed and released infographics to help consumers decipher the hardships that surround the health insurance industry through images, colors and graphics that make the details easy-to-understand.
Some of the released infographics are:
Understanding Where to Find Affordable Medical Insurance

HealthCompare is not stopping there. Now, they have stepped into the realm of publishing, releasing titles that will help today’s consumers make the most of their lives by guiding them through the rough spots like college, divorce, marriage, and parenthood.
Understanding the popularity of ebooks and the reach that these books could have, HealthCompare hopes to be able to help even more Americans improve their lives.
The new ebooks were originally set for release on August 6. However, due to unforeseen delays, the dates have pushed to mid-August. Each week, there will be a new title release.
