HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, is releasing new tools in their attempt to help Americans who are in search of health insurance.
Orange, CA (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
Infographics from HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, seek to educate consumers on hardships related to health insurance. Infographics are a new type of graphic that helps illustrate typically difficult ideas and topics by extracting the essence of data and arguments from things like scientific reports, debates, industry reports and more.
These types of documents characteristically contain jargon and difficult language that often dilute their meanings since those not accustomed to them often have hard times trying to decipher their meanings. Infographics make these hard concepts easy by cutting away all the unnecessary terminology and dressing up the topic essences in beautiful pictures and colors.
The infographics released are:
Get An Individual Health Quote - Designed to help consumers find health insurance quotes that are tailored to their needs
Health Insurance For Individuals Vs. Group Health Insurance - Illustrates the different types of policies available to consumers
How Health Insurance Quotes Save Consumers Money - Educates the consumer on the benefits health insurance quotes can have
Individual Health Insurance Quotes Done Right - Designed to explain the right and wrong ways to get insurance quotes
What Instant Online Health Insurance Quote Means For Consumers - Designed to educate consumers on the inner workings of health insurance quotes

Nationally recognized for its compassion, HealthCompare encourages visitors to its site to pause and ask themselves certain questions. These questions are designed to help visitors make informed decisions about the kinds of health insurance they should be looking for, as well as about their financial status in their search. Helping the consumer make educated decisions empowers the shoppers to consider all necessary angles before seeking quotes from any site or representative.
The questions that HealthCompare encourages consumers to ask themselves are:
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 is much more than a mere monthly premium. There are out-of-network expenses, co-pays, and even deductibles to be considered. HealthCompare wants Americans to understand what they're paying for even before they start.
