Small Business “SHOP” Exchanges Delayed Until November

"...your unbiased advocate, providing expert strategy matched to your company's goals and objectives"

 

The Obama Administration announced Thursday that the roll out of the  Small Business Health Care marketplaces known as the “SHOP” will be delayed until at least November.  Although the coverage would not be effective until January, the on-line exchanges were to open October 1.

This is the latest setback for the roll out of the major provisions of the Affordable Care Act.  Opponents of the law see this delay as just another reason the effective date should be delayed.

    Private Healthcare Marketplaces are synonyms for  “Health Exchanges”.  Private Marketplaces are simply privately sponsored on-line shopping sites for individual health plans.  These marketplaces can be coupled with Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) for employers to provide fixed monthly reimbursements for premiums to employees on a tax-advantaged basis. These arrangements are also known as “defined contribution health plans”.

    Advanced Benefit Strategies has established the ABS Healthcare Marketplace to give employers and individuals access to individual health plans through a comparative shopping experience.  We anticipate this will be important to our clients as an attractive option for dealing with the impact of the ACA (Healthcare Reform).
