FF-SHOP Online Enrollment Delayed

On Nov. 27, 2013, Health and Human Services delayed online enrollment for federally facilitated Small Business Health Options Programs (FF-SHOPs) until November 2014. Although online enrollment in the FF-SHOPs will not be available until then, paper applications will be accepted.  Small employers can also access an overview of available plans and premiums at healthcare.gov.

FF SHOP Online Enrollment Delayed until 11/2014

In states with FF-SHOPs, employers who want to enroll for 2014 can do so with a paper application through an agent, broker or insurer offering a certified SHOP plan. States that operate their own SHOP Exchanges are permitted to offer online enrollment for 2014.

HHS has also announced an extension of the enrollment deadline for FF-SHOPs from the original Dec. 15, 2013, to Dec. 23, 2013, for coverage beginning on Jan. 1, 2014.

To see if your state is eligible for enrollment in FF-SHOP visit the SHOP Marketplace.

If you would like us to help you with a paper application for your small business, feel free to contact us at (866) 405-7226 or send us a message.

Did you know?

Due to key Affordable Care Act (ACA) changes scheduled for 2014, consumers have been receiving cancelation notices from their health insurance companies. On Nov. 14, the White House announced a transition policy for 2014 that allows insurers to extend policies that don’t meet ACA standards.

However, state governors and insurance commissioners are not required to allow this transition policy. Some states are rejecting the one-year delay and are adhering to the original compliance deadline for ACA health insurance standards.
