ANSWER

To be considered a small employer group, you must have at least one employee who is not a spouse in most states. However, you and your spouse can purchase individual market coverage and may be able to qualify for financial assistance through the health insurance Marketplace. For assistance, you may contact a local health insurance Navigator or broker through the "Find Local Help" page on HealthCare.gov. (29 U.S.C § 2510.3-3; 45 C.F.R. § 144.103).
