For years I was using worksheets provided by the textbook resources to review the major terms and concepts of health insurance. But after completing them, I realized my students were simply regurgitation the information and not actually synthesizing or comprehending the materials. So I came up with these two worksheets to encourage students to have a deeper understanding. Topics include terminology (deductible, co-insurance, co-pay, premium, out of pocket max etc.) as well as provider entities like Medicare, Medicaid, PPO and HMO.

Answer key also included!

    So Useful!

    Posted by Ashley Rachunek on Mar 2nd 2021

    I love Purposeful Pedagogy... there's not many resources out there for Health Science teachers... but you can tell that a lot of time & energy goes into making these activities... even if it's just a "glorified worksheet," it makes it a little more fun and the concepts understandable. Health Insurance is hard... but this and the "Game of Life" really helped my students figure it out!

    Just what I needed!

    I don't usually spend too much time on insurance, so this allowed me to introduce terms and allow them to do relate it to real life.

    This is all I'll need

    I've taught medical insurance for three years to my Medical Assistant students and this will always be my go-to for this lesson. It makes it clear and understandable and allows them to work through a card. I do wish it included Tricare/Worker's Comp., but that's simple to add into the lesson. It was very frustrating to realize that the math is wrong on the key. I felt like a moron until we worked it out.

    This is a tough and typically dry unit of content to cover. However, the worksheets help students understand complex material in an easy-to-understand format. Will definitely use them again!

    Health Insurance 101

    Posted by Allison Loftin on Sep 11th 2019

    Really helps students understand the cost of insurance and how it works. The numbers for National General Insurance are different on the answer key from the student worksheet. I didn't catch it before hand so it led to a little bit of confusion. But easy enough to change on the key for next time!
