White House Issues Further Changes to SHOP

Date: 12/05/2013 Last week, the Obama administration announced that the federally administered Small Business Health Insurance Options Program (SHOP) Exchange will not accept online enrollments for another year, at least until November 2014. In the interim, small businesses can enroll in exchange-listed plans through an insurance agent or broker, or directly with an issuer. Currently on the SHOP, small businesses can create profiles and view plan profiles, but businesses cannot submit applications or receive rate quotes. The White House also communicated that businesses seeking the small business health care tax credit no longer have to be certified by the government that they are eligible for the tax credits before enrolling in a health plan. Instead, a business will have to get the certification before filing its taxes. We will provide you more information about this as soon as possible.
