Orange, California (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, HealthCompare, seeks to educate the American health insurance consumer through ebooks, infographics, and understanding.
Determined to help people understand the inner workings of health care, HealthCompare has set a plan to release ebooks.
The ebooks will be based on a wide range of topics like divorce, becoming self-employed, college survival, becoming a parent and more. Each new title will be published weekly.
Prior to their step into the publishing arena, HealthCompare creating and releasing infographics that helped to illustrate the health insurance hardships that Americans face.
Infographics are online tools to help explain difficult topics like health care. They extract the industry jargon and lingo and replace it with data, images, and colors so readers can easily understand the concepts discussed.
Some of HealthCompare’s infographics are:
Understanding Where to Find Affordable Medical Insurance
The Right Way To Make A Health Insurance Comparisons
Affordable Medical Insurance Isn’t Just A Dream
Is Low-Deductible Health Insurance A Bad Thing
These infographics came after HealthCompare’s initial steps to educate their potential customers by asking them a series of questions when they visited their site. The questions were designed to help shoppers understand what their true health insurance needs are and what their financial capabilities are.
The questions that helped customers understand their needs 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.
HealthCompare’s compassion for its customers has evolved from questionnaires to ebooks.
The ebooks were originally scheduled to be released at the beginning of August, but have been rescheduled for mid-September. Titles will be released weekly thereafter.
