Delays haunt HealthCompare’s attempts at book release again. HealthCompare is a nationally recognized health insurance comparison company. They’ve been working on furthering their efforts to educate American health insurance shoppers on the hardships they face when it comes to finding effective medical coverage.
HealthCompare began assisting customers find policies that suited their needs back when they began helping them discover their true needs. Visitors to their site were asked to answer a series of questions such as:
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 then took the hardships of health insurance and translated them into infographics to better explain how those hardships affect shoppers.
Infographics are tools used to illustrate difficult topics in easy-to-read formats by extracting the jargon and difficult language. Images, aesthetically pleasing colors make the data self-explanatory and accessible.
Some of the infographics HealthCompare released are:
How To Find Affordable Health Insurance - Designed to help health insurance consumers find affordable health insurance

HealthCompare has since stepped into the realm of publishing. With the explosion of the ebook industry, they have seen the opportunity to reach the masses through informative ebooks that will lead the American consumer through various stages of life.
Since beginning the ebook journey, they have reached their second delay in release dates. HealthCompare is now aiming to publish the first of their weekly releases mid-September.
