The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) is a new program that simplifies the process of buying health insurance for your small business. And now there’s a new way to get help with your health insurance questions– the Health Insurance Marketplace Small Employer call center.

Call us right now to get your SHOP and small business questions answered by a customer service representative at 1-800-706-7893 or (TTY: 1-800-706-7915 ). The call center is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST.

Why you should use the SHOP Marketplace

You can get high-quality coverage: All SHOP plans offer your employees a set of 10 comprehensive benefits. They cover things like pre-existing conditions, pregnancy, hospitalizations, doctor's visits, preventive care, prescriptions, and more.

You control coverage and costs: The SHOP Marketplace makes it easy to discover and compare your insurance options. You control the coverage you offer and how much you pay toward employee premiums. And you may qualify for a tax credit worth up to 50% of your premium costs.

Coverage is available in every state: No matter what state you do business in, you’ll have access to the SHOP Marketplace. In some states, you’ll use your state’s website to apply for coverage. In other cases you’ll use Find the SHOP Marketplace that serves you.

For 2014, the SHOP Marketplace is open to employers with 50 or fewer full-time-equivalent employees (FTEs). Self-employed? You won’t use SHOP, you’ll use the Health Insurance Marketplace for individuals & families.

Health Care

COBRA benefits can be expensive. My Cobra benefits were $350/month (including medical and dental). My plan was a PPA (one of the best). You should look into your COBRA plan type and cost.
My COBRA benefits just expired (as of 4/1/03) and I'm looking into different packages/options. However, Individual benefit health plans in the tri-state area really stink. Health companies would rather sell benefit packages to small businesses rather to individuals. The lowest quote I received for an individual package was $410/month with United Healthcare. However, it came with a $1,000 hospital deductable as well
