Orange, California (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
Intent on closing the health insurance education gap, HealthCompare announces the release of new ebooks to reach out to larger numbers of consumers. As a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, they began their reputation for compassion when they began teaching shoppers visiting their site to develop a deep understanding for their health insurance needs.
By answering the following questions, visitors would know what policies would best serve them and their wallets.
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.
In growing beyond delving questions, HealthCompare wanted to drive home the hardships that their industry is associated with. They then developed infographics to illustrate said difficulties.
WIth the inherent complexity of health insurance, infographics use bright colors and images combined with data to draw pictures to explain the information discovered in reports and studies.
Some infographics released are:
Why Health Insurance Comparisons Are Important
Insurance For Self-Employed Isn’t Impossible
Is Affordable Medical Insurance Just A Dream
Company Policies Vs. Private Health Insurance
Other infographics can be found here.
HealthCompare now resolves to use the booming self-publishing industry to reach consumers from all walks of life and in all stages of life to empower them to make effective health care choices.
Their ebooks will be released weekly beginning in August and will cover a wide range of topics from college survival to surviving new parenthood and more.
