Health insurance companies are helping their clients live healthier lives by using a mix of free screenings, wearable technology and education to help clients live better lives. Providers are using insurance blogs to inform consumers with juicy information that keeps them educated, aware and engaged.
Here are some insurance blogs that do a good job at empowering consumers:
Their opening says it all- “Let’s talk total health. Whether you’re looking to try out a new recipe, read care stories or find new ways to live well, we’ve got you covered.” The blog is called “Share” because it shares “views, news and moves” in the healthcare space.
Sorted by most viewed and categories, this blog is easy to navigate. The blogs are posted a few times a week maintaining a fresh feed of content. There are a lot of helpful tips like:
