Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)
The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) allows small businesses to offer qualified health plans (QHPs) to their employees and potentially claim tax credits. As Oregon currently does not have an automated SHOP, small employers may purchase certified SHOP qualified health plans directly from the carrier. Upon request, the Marketplace will determine whether the small employer meets the requirements to participate in the program and potentially be eligible for the IRS small business health coverage tax credit. For information, see the documents below.
