HealthCompare is a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site whose goal is to empower American consumers to make healthcare choices that are right for them and their budgets.
They began their quest for compassion by asking site visitors to understand their deepest needs historically, financially, and medically. Visitors would gain this understanding by answering, honestly, the following questions:
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 HealthCompare chose to continue their quest by releasing infographics they designed to illustrate hardships and realities associated with health insurance. The infographics released distill the complexities from their industry and using images and colors to draw them out in a graphic design.
Some infographics released are:
Is There Really Affordable Medical Coverage Available - Designed to help consumers find their most affordable options
Family Health Insurance Needs - Designed to help shoppers find health insurance for their families
Are Health Insurance Brokers Necessary - Created to assist consumers in deciding whether or not they need a health insurance broker
COBRA Isn’t The Only Health Insurance For Unemployed - Designed to educate the unemployed on their health insurance choices
Private Health Insurance Vs. Group Health Insurance - Educates shoppers on the difference between private and group health insurance
Other infographics can be found here.
But HealthCompare has seen a new avenue of technology that will allow them to extend their compassion to more consumers and their needs. Ebooks have exploded in popularity and have made books and ereaders more affordable and more portable. With more Americans reading than ever, they see the new opportunity that lie ahead.
Their line of books will be released weekly beginning in August and will reach consumers at all stages of life, whether they are looking for a guide to survive college or new parenthood.
About Health Compare: HealthCompare was launched in 2009 to work with brokers and carriers to help individuals and families easily research, compare, buy, and enroll in the right health insurance plan at the right price. Based in Orange, Calif., it delivers accurate, customized, health insurance quotes for the country's diverse population.
Through a unique partnership with its sister company, CONEXIS, HealthCompare has the ability to quickly reach thousands of COBRA-qualifying consumers and provide them with COBRA alternatives at the moment they become eligible for COBRA benefits. This provides these consumers with an opportunity to enroll in individual or family plans and potentially save hundreds to thousands of dollars on COBRA premiums and, at the same time, rewards referring brokers with referral fee income for the life of each policy.
