Coming soon: Changes to the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) for 2018

It’s that time of year again, when you may be starting to think about your small business’ health insurance options for 2018. For plans starting January 1, 2018, the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) will offer some new features that’ll impact how you enroll and manage your coverage.

What’s new for small business owners

  • For plans starting on or after January 1, 2018, you’ll enroll with your insurance company, or with the assistance of an agent or broker.
  • You’ll no longer use HealthCare.gov to select and enroll in plans, or manage coverage and pay premiums. See SHOP plans and prices in your area.
