For SHOP plans in states with a Federal SHOP, employers won’t use HealthCare.gov to enroll employees in or renew coverage. Instead, they’ll work with their insurance company or SHOP-registered agent or broker. (Employees will get their coverage offers from the insurance company or employer.)
But, some employers may still need to use HealthCare.gov to verify that they're eligible
if they're enrolling in SHOP for the first time, had a gap in coverage, or have made a change that could end their eligibility.
