What is the Employer Marketplace?

Marketplace where Employer’s can select plan options and will be able to _____________. Once the employer is set up, the employees can then compare the choosen options based on cost and benefits that meet thier needs.

Groups with 2-49 full time employees will be able to choose to offer benefits through either a PUBLIC marketplace, called the Small business Health Options Plan (SHOP) or through a PRIVATE Marketplace direct with a private company.

Groups that are deemed “LARGE GROUPS” (50 or more full time equivalent employees) will also have the option to offer coverage via Public or Private Marketplaces but they will not receive tax benefits that are available through the SHOP Marketplace.
