All members of the state’s congressional delegation say in January, they and their staff members will leave their federal health insurance coverage and purchase their own health insurance through the Affordable Care Act's online exchanges.

But the Knoxville News Sentinel reports there is some flexibility for congressional staff members... 

The Senate’s financial clerk says committee and leadership aides are not official members of staff and the House’s chief administrative officer says House members can decide which staff members can keep their federal coverage.
