Obamacare: will I have to take my employer’s plan?

Will I have to join my employer’s plan under Obamacare?  I’m covered by my wife’s plan and would just as soon stay there, if I can.

Dear Likes Choices,

Good news: You will have a choice between your employer’s plan and your spouse’s plan. Your employer may ask you for proof that you are covered by your spouse’s plan. Your employer’s plan will want this, in order to ensure that people are not dropping out for other reasons (such as they can’t afford to join).
