As you might suspect, there is an influx of individuals whose coverage will end January 1 that are business owners. Some of these people would be eligible for small group options.
If I am a business owner, and meet the eligibility requirements as defined by the various insurance carriers, I could leave the individual market completely and be a small business very legitimately. This would give me an opportunity to continue my employment status as is and replace my individual coverage that will end January 1 with the same carrier and comparable products, maybe favorable pricing, for my health insurance needs.
