What is the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)?

If your business has 50 or fewer employees, you might be able to research and purchase health care insurance through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).

On average, small businesses spend 18% more than big businesses to purchase health insurance. SHOP will allow small businesses to pool their risk and gain increased purchasing power. Many will be able to offer employees high-quality coverage at a lower cost.

To enroll, eligible employers must have an office within the service area of the SHOP and offer SHOP coverage to all full-time employees.
