- Cover all employees from the state in which the employer has its main place of business
- Cover the employees in each state through the SHOP in each state, using the primary business address in that state

”This means I can make an appointment to see my doctor without thinking that some terrible illness or injury will sideline my finances. I can start riding my bicycle more and not feel that I'll be a drain on society if I get hit by a car.”

"Had an individual plan after my COBRA ran out 5/12. Had to take money out of a retirement account to pay for the individual plan. The marketplace plan will cost me about $300 LESS per month in premiums while offering the same coverage or better than my old individual plan. This is without any subsidy. They say I make too much money. Why don't I feel rich?"
