      my daughter would qualify for a subsidy if access to other avenues for coverage (eg Medicaid, employer-sponsored health plan) weren't an exclusion. If her employer offered no health plan, she could keep all her doctors and her cancer care center, etc, while getting a tax credit (subsidy) for a substantial portion of the cost of her current insurance.
