SHOP Marketplace Enrollment Online

Dana Halvorson

 According to an email alert from the HealthCare.gov team, for the first time starting on November 15, you will be able to enroll your Small Business through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace entirely online. SHOP was created in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and is a new way for small businesses to buy health insurance for their employees. You can complete an application, choose coverage, and enroll yourself or you can work with an agent or broker. There are a few things you can do now to get ready to enroll for health coverage in the SHOP Marketplace:

Learn more about SHOP coverage and talk to your employees to find out their health coverage needs.
Use the SHOP Full-time Equivalent Employee Calculator to see if you qualify based on your employee count.
Use the SHOP Tax Credit Estimator Tool to find out if you may be eligible for a tax credit and how much the credit could be worth to your Small Business.
See 2014 plans and get premium estimates now.

If you have any questions relating to the ACA, please submit them to insurancecoverage@ahca.org, and be sure to check out AHCA/NCAL’s ACA website.
