    An employer's least expensive plan can cost an employee no more than 9.5% of your W-2.  

    If it is more than that percentage, you are eligible for a subsidized policy on the exchange, as long as your income is more than 100% of poverty (around 14k a year).

    If your income is less than 100% of poverty, you are not eligible for a subsidized policy in the exchange but would be eligible for Medicaid, IF YOUR STATE HAS EXPANDED MEDICAID.

    All of the ruby red states (except Arkansas) have not expanded Medicaid as well as a couple of blue states with tea head governors (PA, ME, WI).  If your income is below 100% of poverty in those states, you are not eligible for a subsidized policy on the exchange and you will have no access to Medicaid.
