HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, has compassion and aims to educate. Shopping for medical coverage is no task that consumers take lightly. The site arms shoppers with full knowledge of what they need to know before beginning their research process.
While monthly premiums are the focus that most buyers hone in on. Doing so limits policies that are available and also possibly hooks the shopper in terms that they ultimately cannot afford.
HealthCompare understands health insurance is much more than premiums and wants the consumer to understand it as well. When visiting the HealthCompare site, visitors are encouraged to ask themselves certain questions that will help them take a full assessment of what their medical needs are, what their financial capabilities are, and what type of policies will best suit their needs.
The questions that consumers are asked to answer for themselves are:
What are the consumers’ current medical needs? What meds are they currently taking? What is the consumers previous medical history?
Is maintaining their current physician their only option? Or are they open to change? Is distance a factor when choosing a physician?
How much did the shopper spend on medical expenses last year? Is prescription coverage necessary? Is maternity coverage needed? Are vision and dental policies a plus or a must?
In addition to completely assessing their medical needs, shoppers are encouraged to fully evaluate their financial options when it comes to purchasing health insurance with the following questions:
Is the consumer financially able to afford higher monthly premiums that accompany lower deductible policies? Or are their budgets better suited to lower monthly premiums that higher deductible policies offer?
Does the buyer have other health insurance options available such as spouse or job coverage?
HealthCompare understands the details that are involved in purchasing a health care policy and wants consumers to understand as well. That’s why they generated these useful infographics to help clarify the subject easily.
Infographics are a tool used to simplify overly complex topics, like health insurance coverage, for the average consumer. They take complex data and scientific information from reports, industry papers, and demographics and make them easier to understand. Scientific and industry reports are full of difficult language and jargon that those outside of the field may or may not understand. In addition, they contain extraneous ideas that are not necessary for comprehension of the core point.
These new graphics take the essence of these complex topics and arrange them in with pictures and explanations that are easy to understand. They make hard to understand easily digestible and shareable ways. They are found all over the internet and HealthCompare saw their advantage in conveying the difficult information surrounding health insurance.
The infographics they’ve released in this series are:
How To Find Affordable Health Insurance - Designed to help health insurance consumers find affordable health insurance
Finding Cheap Health Insurance - Created to educate consumers on the best ways to find cheap health insurance
Find Health Insurance Online - Created to help health insurance shoppers to find effective health insurance online
Buying Individual Health Insurance Effectively - Designed to help today’s consumers choose health insurance that’s effective for them
They’ve released other infographics that can be found here.
HealthCompare wants to educate health insurance consumers everywhere and that’s why they’ve created an easy way for shoppers to understand the hardships that surround their field.
