The Group and Health Core exam is challenging and rewarding. The exams cover many aspects of healthcare including plan design, pricing, employee benefit strategy, government programs, regulation and taxation, and post-retiree medical. Colin Condie, FSA, MBA, MAAA has helped prepare hundreds of actuarial students to pass Group & Health exams since 2007. His student's success has been a result of Colin's excellent content, teaching and, of course, student's diligent efforts executing his plan. To prepare students even more effectively, Colin decided a team approach provides the best exam prep for difficult exams. So, Colin has joined the Coaching Actuaries team to raise Exam GHC prep to an even higher level.
