Small employers can buy coverage for their employees through the SHOP Marketplace at any time during the year. HealthCare.gov no longer operates a SHOP Marketplace website for small employers, however. If you want to sponsor small group coverage through the Marketplace for your employees, you can contact Hummingbird Insurance to book an appointment! In HealthCare.gov states, you can find a SHOP-certified broker using the Find Local Help tool. Be sure to specify to the insurer or broker that you want a SHOP policy.
