Infographics from HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, extended the reach of their compassion from the visitors to their site to others on the web. Now, they will go beyond their infographics and begin the release of their ebooks.
Originally, they began asking visitors to their site to understand their healthcare needs by understanding their history, their finances, and their medical necessities. This understanding came from deep questions that they were posed by HealthCompare.
The questions were 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.
HealthCompare continued to demonstrate their compassion by releasing infographics to illustrate hardships often associated with their industry. Knowing the inherent complexity within their niche, they opted to make it understandable by using graphics that make difficult concepts easy-to-understand.
Infographics use colors and images to illustrate concepts rather than words to explain. Thereby taking out the jargon and difficult language that makes the topic at hand difficult.
Some of the infographics released are:
Understanding Where to Find Affordable Medical Insurance
The Right Way To Make A Health Insurance Comparisons
Why Skipping Self-Employed Health Insurance Isn’t a Good Idea
Affordable Medical Insurance Isn’t Just A Dream
Other infographics can be found here.
But HealthCompare didn’t want to stop there.
Using the popularity of ebooks and ereaders, they have decided to release ebooks to reach even more consumers since more Americans are reading now than ever before. The ebooks to be published are on topics ranging from new marriages to self employment.
The release of the books will be weekly beginning in August.
HealthCompare understands and wants to help consumers to understand, too.
