Explaining who is eligible for what won't be easy, Mercer's Grossman says.

"The real conundrum for employers, especially for those with large segments at or below two times the federal poverty limit, will be finding themselves in the uncomfortable position of preventing employees from getting a federal subsidy to purchase insurance on the public exchanges. It will require lots of communication requirements and lots of personal counseling and coaching. The problem is that the vast majority of employees will be eligible for an affordable plan, which prevents them from getting a subsidy. It won't be easy for employees either."
