Testing the SHOP in Ohio: Not as 'Easy as Buying a Plane Ticket'
InsureBlog Link to more items from this source
Oct. 30, 2014
"Ohio is one of five states with early access to the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).... [The web site] asked us to begin entering information for each employee. We could either do that or download an excel document and populate it into the system.... The spreadsheet has 20 columns to complete for each employee. Each dependent has an additional 8 columns to complete. You must provide date of birth, social security number, date of hire, address, employee code, and a preferred method of contact for each employee and their dependents.... Without knowing the rates and benefits it doesn't make sense to waste productivity gathering all of the data. Instead we will wait until the insurance companies are allowed to quote the plans directly. When will that be? I'm not sure but I'll bet it won't be until after next Tuesday."
