FAQs on SHOP Enrollment at Federally Facilitated Marketplace

HHS issues Frequently Asked Questions on how small employers can enroll employees at SHOPs managed by the Federal government.

Document Excerpt

 Now there’s a quick and simple way to do this, that’s already familiar to many small employers: You can handle the whole process—applying, shopping and enrolling by—contacting an agent, broker, or an insurance company that offers a SHOP Marketplace plan. With this “direct enrollment” process, you don’t have to create an online account, or, if you choose, wait to hear about your eligibility from the SHOP Marketplace before enrolling. You should be aware that if you permit your employees to enroll before hearing about your SHOP eligibility, and the SHOP Marketplace later finds that you were not in fact eligible to offer SHOP coverage, you may not be able to access the Small Business Health Care tax credit.
