Orange, California (PRWEB) September 17, 2012
The nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, HealthCompare, releases new information regarding September’s remembrance of National Fruits and Veggie Month.
With the staggering numbers of Americans uninsured, HealthCompare educates consumers on wellness, as well as their health insurance options.
Fast food has long been a staple around the home. This crutch has been identified as a source of disease and poor health in this country. And the better choices consumers make, the better their health is going to be. Thus, lowering health care costs, in general for them and for the public.
The problem has been, until now, finding adequate coverage that’s affordable and worth paying for.
Through HealthCompare’s infographics, ebooks, and website, consumers will be able to get the education they have long needed for making positive health insurance choices.
Some of the infographics they have released are:
How To Find Affordable Health Insurance - Designed to help health insurance consumers find affordable health insurance
Buying Health Insurance - Designed to help today’s health insurance shopper buy health insurance online
Finding Cheap Health Insurance - Created to educate consumers on the best ways to find cheap health insurance
What To Look For In Children’s Health Insurance - Designed to educate to help today’s consumers ask the right questions about children’s health insurance
Find Health Insurance Online - Created to help health insurance shoppers to find effective health insurance online
These infographics utilize graphics, bold color combinations, and raw data to help illustrate and explain what was once considered highly confusing concepts. These reports extract the scientific language and extraneous jargon that’s inherently intertwined in the health care industry reports and demographics.
In the wake of these many graphic tools, HealthCompare is releasing ebooks to further their education efforts for the public.
These books will be offered as free education on their website where they used to offer questionnaires to help consumers pinpoint how to effectively decide on a policy that suited their needs and their bank account.
Questions that HealthCompare used to pose to consumers 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.
Now, the publishing industry boom is allowing HealthCompare to educate beyond site visitors.
