Illinois Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)September 17, 2019
Beginning January 1, 2020, Health Alliance will be exiting the Illinois Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP). As SHOP groups renew throughout 2020, they will need to select a new plan for their employees.
To help with that selection, 90 days prior to each group’s renewal, letters will be sent to employers that list a new plan suggestion for their next plan year. However, we will not automatically move groups to the new plan. Groups will need to select the new coverage using the Small Group Employer application.
Employees will also get a letter 90 days prior to their renewal letting them know that their coverage will be changing.
