Yes, workers, you can still get health coverage in 2014 despite employer mandate delay
Modern Healthcare

Workers who find themselves out of luck, at least in 2014, in getting health coverage as a result of the administration’s one-year delay in the employer mandate, don’t have to fret. That’s because they will be able to get insurance through each state’s individual insurance exchange, with the added bonus that if their annual income falls below 400% of the federal poverty level, they are eligible for subsidies.

Not only does an exchange give these employees more choice then they would likely have with their employer, but they may end up paying less depending on how much in income tax credits they receive.
