With the enforcement of the Affordable Care Act, students and their families must have health insurance or they face a tax penalty. This activity guides students through a comparison of two (minimum) different health plans. Using Covered California or another relevant exchange, students must compare plans and then utilize the plan through four different scenarios. This activity ends with a cost-benefit analysis of both plans. Students may complete this task using computers or a teacher may create a resource bank of sample health costs. Additional non-fiction reading, a Common Core State Standard, supplements this lesson with an introduction from Consumer Reports (search: "It's time to get mad about the outrageous cost of health care"; November 2014). This activity is a great supplement to the Budget Project!
