What can I do if an insurance agency lied about the plan they sold me?

Question Details: On a recorded phone call an agent sold me what he said was a 70/30 coinsurance major PPO plan for my family to use for health insurance. Upon receiving my explanation of benefits I find out that I don't have major medical at all and it is only an accident policy. Now myself and my family are without insurance and have missed the deadline to accept insurance from my employer. Is there anything that I can do?
