HealthCare.com submitted this infogaphic to us. They also provided a description:

Having a gap in health insurance coverage can be a little nerve-wracking. Should you become ill or injure yourself, a single unexpected medical bill can potentially cause substantial financial strain. Short-term health insurance plans are designed to be a pocketbook-friendly coverage option during life’s in-between times. They include benefits to help pay for unexpected medical expenses such emergency room visits, an ambulance, hospitalization, outpatient hospital care and others, depending on your plan. This can offer some peace of mind until you buy major medical insurance. Missed Open Enrollment? Check out the infographic created by HealthCare.com team to see why a short-term plan might be a good fit for you.

This infographic jumps right into what short-term plans could help cover and how long they’ll last — right away, the viewer knows whether this type of health insurance could work for their needs. It’s also nice to see information footnoted for fast reference on what information came from what sources.

Regarding the footnotes: footnotes should be ordered from the order they appear on the design, so it doesn’t make much sense to have a footnote “5″ in the very first section before any others. The source currently labeled “5″ should be moved to “1″ and all others reordered so they are listed in order of appearance.

Also, watch for typos! Under “The Risks of Going Uninsured” we have “Are you prepared to 100 percent out of pocket for unexpected medical care?” It seems to be missing a word, maybe “pay” before “100 percent.” There’s another typo in that section too; make sure your infographic is publication-ready!

In all I’d give this infographic a B-. Overall it follows good practices for infographics, but there are typos and the bottom section gets a bit text-heavy.
