Get Covered Illinois has information about new opportunities for small businesses to access health coverage for their employees. If you or other members of your organization would like to receive additional updates from Get Covered Illinois, please sign up at: http://getcoveredillinois.gov/stay-informed/
Over the last several weeks, there have been many rule changes to the
Affordable Care Act affecting small businesses. To help clarify those changes,
Get Covered Illinois is happy to share updated information about the health
insurance Marketplace, financial assistance available to small businesses and
what steps Illinois businesses and individuals can take to find a health plan
right for them.
Please click on the following link to access the toolkit
for small business owners who may be interested in learning more about the
Small Business Health Options Marketplace (SHOP) and the Small Business Health
Insurance Tax Credit, worth up to 50 percent of an employer’s contribution to
employee premium costs. A variety of materials are included to help educate
your membership and empower them and their employees to make informed choices
about their health coverage.
For employers who choose not to provide health coverage, this
one-page flyer contains some basic information that a business can share
with their employees on newly available health coverage options and where to
find more information.
