I Already have Insurance through my Work – Can I Still Purchase a Policy through my State’s Marketplace?

Yes, you may purchase health insurance through a Marketplace instead of through your employer.  However, if you purchase health insurance through a Marketplace instead of through your employer, you will no longer receive employer contributions toward your health insurance premiums and you will not be eligible for the Premium Insurance Tax Credit or for assistance with your cost-sharing obligations, regardless of your household income and/or size, if the health insurance offered through your employer is deemed ‘affordable’ (less than 9.5 percent of your annual household income for 2014) and provides a minimum value.
