If you work for a large employer, they have to offer coverage that provides minimum value to comply with the employer mandates. A plan that provides minimum value will generally also be considered major medical coverage, as it will be fairly comprehensive.
A small minority of large employers—particularly those with a low-wage, high-turnover workforce—opt to offer plans that do not provide minimum value and cannot be considered major medical coverage.
Any plan you buy in your state will be considered major medical coverage. Medicare and most Medicaid plans also count as minimum essential coverage and can be considered major medical plans.
