HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, targets health insurance consumer education through their newly announced self-development line of the ebooks to be released in mid-September.
This line of books will allow HealthCompare to reach more Americans than ever, thanks to the publishing industry’s boom and ereader popularity.
HealthCompare will release a self-development line the books that will touch on topics such as marriage, birth, divorce, college and more. These ebooks will be weekly beginning in mid-September.
However, HealthCompare didn’t begin their goal to educate with the ebook industry. They began by asking site visitors questions to help them understand what their health insurance needs were.
Seeing the discrepancy in consumer understanding and policy efficiency, HealthCompare chose to help site visitors dig deep into their medical history medical preferences and financial abilities. The end result was shoppers walking away with policies that were more effective and affordable.
Some of the questions asked by HealthCompare 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.
That’s why they developed their line of infographics to help illustrate this topic.
Infographics are online tools used to extract the essence of an idea and illustrate it through images and data alone. The purpose is to extract the difficult jargon and industry lingo that plagues these and other hard-to-understand concepts.
Some infographics released by HealthCompare are:
