Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) is a new health insurance marketplace developed for small businesses with one to 50 eligible employees. An eligible employee is one who works an average of 30 hours per week based on a month of work.
SHOP grants you the opportunity to offer your employees a host of quality health insurance options from private insurance companies and simplifying the process so you don’t have to do it on your own. Again, this is not a requirement, but many small businesses choose to offer coverage because of the many benefits it delivers to their business and employees.
