He explores what types of plans are typically best for certain client profiles and how to help clients avoid the following pitfalls:
- Overpaying for a plan
- enrolling in the wrong plan—not suitable for their budget or health needs
- doing nothing due to confusion which leads to them being non-compliant with the rules—and exposed to liability.
Jake also explores the various enrollment periods and the penalties for not enrolling at the proper time.
