• An uninsured worker at a business with fewer than 25 employees can seek discounted coverage through an Affordable Care Act program. But the employers must meet certain criteria and do not have to participate.

• People who earn between 100 and 400 percent of the poverty level can use tax credits to purchase coverage from the health exchange in 2014. The poorest of that group will pay no more than 2 percent of their income on premiums, as well as get a subsidy for other health costs.

• The uninsured can continue seeking health care at hospital emergency rooms or free clinics across the state.
