Covered California’s Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) is a health insurance marketplace developed for businesses with one to 100 eligible employees (An eligible employee works an average of 30 hours).
Business owners know that the ability to offer employees quality health insurance is a competitive advantage in the labor market. Health insurance through Covered California’s SHOP gives you financial control of your business while allowing your employees to choose from a range of quality, affordable health plans.
Covered California serves Californians by helping to:
- Improve access to quality coverage. More Californians than ever before have easy access to a wide range of private health insurance plans. Millions of Californians who do not have health insurance can benefit from lower-cost coverage. Covered California helps these individuals learn about the health coverage options that best meet their needs. It also helps millions more who are not eligible for financial support, but can still benefit by using the insurance protections that have taken effect under the new health care law.
- Make health coverage affordable. Covered California can help consumers find out if they are eligible for sliding-scale financial assistance that could help reduce health care costs. If income is very limited, consumers may be eligible for free coverage through Medi-Cal. Covered California also helps reduce health care costs for all Californians by reducing the number of uninsured and the burden of uncompensated care that was previously borne by all of those who had insurance.
- Improve the health of all Californians. With health insurance, individuals don’t have to wait for small health problems to become big ones. Access to preventive care and a network of health professionals who are trained to keep are available to help consumers stay healthy. Covered California also works to promote prevention and wellness programs that help all Californians.
