Key dates for getting employee coverage in the SHOP Marketplace

You can offer employee coverage through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace at any time during the year. But there are key dates you’ll want to remember.

What are the dates to know?

If your employee enrollments are submitted between the 1st and 15th day of the month, your group coverage begins the first day of the next month. For example, if your employee enrollments are submitted on February 10, 2014, your group coverage begins March 1, 2014.

For enrollments submitted after the 15th of the month, coverage begins the second following month. So, if employee enrollments are submitted on February 18, your group coverage will begin on April 1.

If you want your employees’ coverage to begin on January 1, 2014, the current deadline is December 23.
