That might be a good strategy to help people. However if you work in an area with a high minimum wage you are in danger of putting a worker in MediCal or Medicaid only to find out they can't qualify. The other problem I have with this relates to the optics. Why are we working so hard to support government run health insurance?

Good move Benestream! After the first OE fiasco, many brokers used an "anti-government/welfare program" approach with clients. The ACA naively ignored the possibility that many groups would fear the ER mandate and keep their employees out of subsidized markets. Yet, ERs are in a lose-lose position in actual practice. It takes some courage to present such an obvious solution born from and at government expense, which is counter-intuitive for ERs AND EEs. * The deal is corrupted: "If I work fulltime, I will get health benefits from my ER, and not have to turn to welfare tracking & reporting of my life." is gone.
