Marketplace Eligibility

I live in State A but my small business is in State B. I want to buy group coverage for my employees through the SHOP Marketplace. In what state should I buy health benefits?

You should buy group coverage through the SHOP Marketplace in State B, where your business is located.  If your business is located in a HealthCare.gov state, there is no SHOP Marketplace website.  Instead, you should contact insurers directly or work directly with a broker to buy a small group policy.  Be sure to specify that you want a SHOP policy.

While we have made every effort to provide accurate information in these FAQs, people should contact the health insurance Marketplace or Medicaid agency in their state for guidance on their specific circumstances.
