What is shop coverage?
The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace helps businesses provide health coverage to their employees.
- You control the coverage you offer and how much you pay toward employee premiums.
- Compare health plans online, which helps you make a decision that's right for your business.
- You may qualify for a small business health care tax credit worth up to 50% of your premium costs.
- Deduct from your taxes the rest of your premium costs not covered by the tax credit.
How can I enroll in SHOP coverage?
Employers with 50 or fewer employees may enroll in SHOP coverage. Visit the SHOP Full-time Equivalent Calculator and the SHOP Tax Credit Estimator to find out if you are eligible.
