Does anyone take advantage of this option or have any thoughts on creating small groups to avoid the ACA? I'm in Missouri.
You CANNOT create a company or a group for the sole purpose of receiving group benefits. Not sure what state you're in either but that 1099 offering is rarely pulled off. Most carriers in my state do not allow it for this simple reason- you must display an employer-employee relationship. Best of luck!
