It was born out of passage of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) back in 2010, but now the online enrollment and payment portal for the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP), is no more. Last Sunday, February 10, 2019, the enrollment and payment portal only, closed for good as SHOP coverage may now be acquired through a qualified agent, broker, or issuer. The change was set in motion last year with the adoption of regulations that transitioned the exchange platform to an issuer-based system allowing small businesses to more easily enroll in SHOP coverage. More details on how to access SHOP coverage is available on the SHOP website here at or through your own agent or broker.
