Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)

A program that small employers can take advantage of through HealthSource RI. With the SHOP, small employers establish a defined annual premium contribution for their employees, allowing each employee to select the insurer, benefit plan, and premium level of their choice. In 2016, employers with less than 100 employees in 2016 will be considered “small employers” and SHOP-eligible. In 2017, states will have the ability to approve large employers (100+ employees) to buy plans through the SHOP program.
