Online enrollment in the healthcare marketplace delayed for Florida's small businesses


Small businesses looking to enroll in the SHOP exchange -- the online marketplace for small group health plans that was scheduled to launch Oct. 1 -- will have to do it on paper for the time being, Politico reports. The delay applies to the federally-run SHOP exchanges, which includes Florida's. It doesn't apply to the online marketplace for individuals.

"Small businesses looking to enroll in coverage on so-called SHOP exchanges run by the federal government will be able to submit a paper application on Oct. 1 – they just won’t be able to enroll online," says Politco. 

As for applying on paper, information has yet to be released on how applications will be transmitted from federal-run SHOPs to insurers selling the health plans. Read the story.
