Health insurance consumers receive an education in self-development from HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site.
HealthCompare originally began helping site visitors understand their health insurance needs by asking them a series of questions that would delve deep into their medical history their medical preferences as well as their financial abilities.
The questions that help compared developed to help health insurance consumers learn about effective policies are as follows:
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.
And that’s why HealthCompare chose to develop and release infographics to help clear up understand misunderstandings about health insurance hardships.
Seeing the intrinsic difficulty in the health insurance industry health compared chose infographics to make it easier to understand since infographics extract topic ideas from jargon and industry lingo.
Through the display of beautiful images and data concepts become distilled and easier to understand. HealthCompare’s releases are:

Yet, with the publishing boom, the industry HealthCompare has chosen to release ebooks to help Americans understand health insurance. More Americans than ever are reading again thanks to the popularity of ereaders and the affordability of the ebooks.
HealthCompare will optimize their reach through self-development ebooks that help consumers pass through troubled times like divorce, becoming a business owner and finding happiness.
The ebooks were originally scheduled to be released in August. But publication dates have been moved to mid-September. However, the weekly release will continue as scheduled.
