Small Business (SHOP) Overview

The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace helps businesses provide health coverage to their employees.

For 2014, the SHOP Marketplace is open to employers with 50 or fewer full-time-equivalent employees (FTEs). If you have fewer than 25 employees, you may qualify for tax credits if you buy insurance through SHOP.

If you're self-employed with no employees, you can get coverage through the individual Market Health Insurance Marketplace, but not through SHOP.

To enroll in a SHOP plan, you'll use an agent, broker, or insurance company. You'll also fill out a SHOP eligibility application.
