SHOP Marketplace

The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace helps small businesses provide health coverage to their employees.

The SHOP Marketplace is open to employers with 50 or fewer full-time equivalent employees (FTEs). This includes non-profit organizations. FCIS is your certified resource to help determine if SHOP Marketplace is a good fit for your business.

Benefits of the SHOP Marketplace
  • If your small business or non-profit organization has 50 or fewer full-time equivalent (FTE) employees, you can use the SHOP Marketplace to offer your employees affordable, high-quality health coverage.
  • You control the coverage you offer and how much you pay toward employee premiums.
  • When you compare health plans available in the SHOP Marketplace, you can choose from 4 levels of coverage. This makes it easier to find a plan that works for your business and your employees.
  • If you enroll in SHOP coverage and have fewer than 25 employees, you may qualify for a Small Business Health Care Tax Credit worth up to 50% of your premium costs. The tax credit is available only for plans bought through the SHOP Marketplace.

You can apply for SHOP coverage any time. There’s no restricted enrollment period for SHOP coverage like there is in the individual Marketplace. FCIS will help you make a smooth transition into the SHOP Marketplace. Contact FCIS today to learn if going through SHOP is your best option.
