Got a Small Business? Get a Tax Credit

Updated: Feb 20

If you’re looking to provide health and dental coverage to your employees, consider the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) from Maryland Health Connection. SHOP is the only place where small businesses can get a tax credit to lower the cost of offering coverage.

Offering health insurance to your employees isn’t just a nice thing to do. It’s a smart thing to do, because businesses that offer health coverage are able to attract—and retain—top talent. And, healthy employees mean a healthier business.

When you offer health insurance through SHOP, up to half of your costs could be covered. Don’t leave money on the table. Visit to see if your business qualifies.
