Shop Coverages has many years in the health insurance industry. We will use our knowledge to help you find the right plan that works best for you and your employees.
Our Brokerage is built on the principles of doing what’s right for our clients. The benefit of using a Broker is that we work for you! Our loyalty and expertise benefits our clients and their needs. We do not work for the carrier!
We strive to provide you with insurance solutions and provide you the tools to remain compliant so that you can offer the richest of benefits to your employees.

We are here to help provide clarity in plans ranging from shared to exchange plans. Let us help answer your questions today and point you in the right direction.
The (SHOP) Small Business Health Options Exchange will provide small employers with a new marketplace for employee health coverage. The Health Benefit Exchange is still developing final SHOP rules, but here is a summary of what we know thus far. Updated information will be published as new guidance is provided by state and federal authorities. Additional resource links appear below.
Employers can continue to use their Insurance Brokers.
Employers with fewer than 100 employees may participate, although states may limit eligibility to employers with 50 or fewer employees in the first two years. California has elected to keep the SHOP maximum group size to 50 until 2016. Employers must attest to offering all full-time employees coverage through a SHOP. Sole proprietors are considered individuals and will purchase through the Exchange, not through a SHOP.
The SHOP will deliver a single bill to the employer.
SHOP open enrollment began October 1, 2014, contact me with your group census and I will walk you through the process of enrolling your employees through California’s Shop exchange / marketplace.
