What is SHOP?

If you are a small employer (generally 1-50 employees), you may be able to offer your employees Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) coverage. Health insurance plans offered through a Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) are quality, affordable health and dental insurance coverage for small businesses and their employees. SHOP plans are offered by private insurance companies and cover essential health benefits and must cover treatments for pre-existing conditions.

PLEASE NOTE: While Nevada Health Link has offered SHOP coverage to employers in the past, Nevada’s insurance carriers are not offering SHOP Health or Dental plans for 2021 coverage. Small businesses are encouraged to enter into direct relationships with Nevada’s insurance carriers when seeking group coverage for their employees. Employers can also work with a licensed Insurance Agent/Broker to identify alternative group coverage options.

For more information please contact Nevada Health Link’s call center at 1-800-547-2927 (TTY 711).
