Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) sole proprietors now have the option to purchase health care insurance for themselves and their families within the individual marketplace. One important consideration in choosing a plan under the ACA in 2014 is the availability of subsidies on the New York State of Health marketplace which can greatly decrease the cost of health care. If eligible, sole proprietors can take advantage of these subsidies.
