Ebooks, infographics, and soul-searching questions are HealthCompare’s way of displaying their compassion. The nationally recognized health insurance comparison site is known for showing customers they care.
They began building this reputation when they began asking site visitors to answer delving questions so they may develop an understanding of their health care needs prior to searching for their perfect policy.
The questions the visitors were asked were:
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.
This fact is what led HealthCompare to release the infographics to help consumers discover the hardships that are related to the health insurance industry. These infographics are typical of the graphic tools used online to illustrate complex topics in easy to understand formats.
Using bright and contrasting colors with images and data, difficult concepts are simplified by excluding industry jargon and industry language in the depictions.
Some of the infographics released were:
Why Health Insurance Comparisons Are Important
Insurance For Self-Employed Isn’t Impossible
Individual PPO Isn’t For Everyone
Company Policies Vs. Private Health Insurance

HealthCompare will shift their new efforts to publishing in an effort to reach more health insurance consumers than ever. Knowing that with the ease of use of ereaders and the explosion of the ebook industry, that more Americans are reading again.
The titles they will release are lifestyle topics designed to empower consumers in all stages of life, from new parenthood to self-employment. They will be released weekly beginning in August.
