34. well you are either an employer or you arent.
from the summary notice the term acceptable

In year one, individuals not enrolled in other
acceptable coverage as well as small employers with 25 or fewer employees are allowed into the Exchange.

and from the actual bill again notice the term acceptable coverage.

ACCESS TO COVERAGE.In accordance with this
12 section, all individuals are eligible to obtain coverage
13 through enrollment in an Exchange-participating health
14 benefits plan offered through the Health Insurance Ex15
change unless such individuals are enrolled in another
16 qualified health benefits plan or other acceptable coverage

And there is open enrolement every year where you would be able to dump your old coverage.

9 Commissioner shall establish an annual open
10 enrollment period during which an Exchange-el11
igible individual or employer may elect to enroll
12 in an Exchange-participating health benefits
13 plan for the following plan year and an enroll14
ment period for affordability credits under sub15
title C. Such periods shall be during September
16 through November of each year, or such other
17 time that would maximize timeliness of income
18 verification for purposes of such subtitle. The
19 open enrollment period shall not be less than 30
20 days.

some things regarding acceptable coverage.

(A) IN GENERAL.The Commissioner
12 shall establish a grace period whereby, for plan
13 years beginning after the end of the 5-year pe14
riod beginning with Y1, an employment-based
15 health plan in operation as of the day before
16 the first day of Y1 must meet the same require17
ments as apply to a qualified health benefits
18 plan under section 201, including the essential
19 benefit package requirement under section 221.

And last but not least your income would only affect the level of subsidy not your eligability.
