3. If Wyden's Free Choice Amendment gets adopted it will be available to everyone
If you get insurance through your employer, they'll have to provide you with a voucher so you can purchase something on the exchange.

The problem is that your employer provided insurance is provided tax-free, whereas insurance on the exchange is purchased with after-tax dollars.

So it may not make financial sense to take advantage of the voucher, but it will be available as an option.
