Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)

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

SHOP insurance is generally available to employers with 1-50 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs). If you have fewer than 25 employees, you may qualify for the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit, if you buy SHOP insurance. Learn more about SHOP eligibility rules and the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit.
