Small business owners have new opportunities available under the Affordable Care Act. Employers and employees can compare their options and shop for coverage through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).
When you offer coverage through the SHOP, you can choose what level of coverage (i.e., bronze, silver, gold, or platinum) to offer, and then your employees can select any plan offered through the SHOP at the same level. You may also qualify for a federal tax credit for providing coverage to your employees.
