There are two different types of exchanges offered through Covered California – an individual exchange and the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP). The SHOP Exchange makes it possible for small business owners to provide health insurance to their employees.
Using the SHOP Exchange, you choose the level, or tier, of coverage you want to offer to you employees and determine the amount you want to contribute toward their coverage. In the exchange you are able to compare different plans and use a premium estimation tool. To start, select the state your business is in and the SHOP Exchange will guide you through the process.
Sackett & Associates (a certified Covered California agent) can help you navigate through the SHOP Exchange, help determine if you qualify for small group health insurance and which plan is best for your business. A certified agent can help you apply for the insurance plan you want, review and compare prices, coverage and features. We have the information needed to help you select the right plan for your business, employees and budget.
