3 Under the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), small businesses may qualify for tax credits to help them pay the costs of their group health coverage. This assistance is available through the Small Business Health Options Program, better known as SHOP. Each state has a SHOP marketplace. In New York it s known as the Small Business Marketplace, and it s available at nystateofhealth.ny.gov/employer. This kit can help you understand New York s SHOP who qualifies, how to enroll and how to access the available tax credits. Use the Key Terms section at the back to get important definitions. WHY SHOP SHOP is an online marketplace where small businesses can choose plans to offer their employees and get government help funding the costs of coverage. In fact, it s the only place businesses can get this financial help. Within the NY State of Health marketplace (NYSOH), SHOP is called the Small Business Marketplace. Some advantages of getting health coverage through SHOP are: Tax benefits: If your group qualifies, you can get tax credits that return up to 50 percent of your contribution to employee premiums. This credit is only available through SHOP. Use our Cost Calculator at emblemhealthreform.com to see if you may qualify. Defined contribution: You, as the employer, choose whether to offer a fixed amount or a percentage of the employee s monthly individual or family premium as well as the amount or percentage to contribute. However, if you qualify for a tax credit you must contribute at least 50 percent of the premium cost of the lowestpriced self-only plan you choose to offer on SHOP. Easy enrollment and administration: Simply start an online account and choose your plans, and then your employees enroll on their own. You ll pay a monthly bill to SHOP, but NYSOH takes care of most other administrative responsibilities. Guaranteed coverage: Insurers must accept every group that applies for coverage, with very few exceptions. No participation requirements: On SHOP, health insurers cannot deny groups coverage based on the number of employees who enroll in a plan. Outside SHOP, however, minimum participation rules may still apply. More choices for you and your employees: SHOP offers a variety of medical and dental plans at different price points. You pick the plans that work best for your group and then your employees choose which of those plans works best for them. *The information in this kit is current as of October 2014 and may not reflect changes made after publication. It is not meant to provide tax or legal advice. For specific questions, please speak with your legal counsel, tax professional or broker. 1

4 WHO CAN ENROLL SHOP is open to small businesses only, so you first need to determine whether your business qualifies. To enroll in SHOP, you must be a small business with: Under 50 eligible employees A primary business address in New York State At least one common-law employee You cannot enroll through SHOP in 2015 if you are: A business with more than 50 eligible employees A sole proprietor A business consisting of just you and your spouse, or you and your child HOW TO ENROLL If you re eligible for SHOP and decide to enroll, you, as the employer, take the first step by registering your group. Then it s up to each eligible employee to enroll in coverage through the Employees section of NYSOH. To register your group, follow these five steps: 1. Visit NYSOH online to start an account. Before you do this, you can choose to explore the SHOP marketplace anonymously to see your plan options. When you re ready to start your account, simply: a. Visit the NY State of Health website at nystateofhealth.ny.gov. b. Select Employers. c. Follow the instructions to Register as an Employer, where you ll upload information about your small business such as a roster of your employees. 2. Choose SHOP plans for your group. You can choose to offer your employees: a. All plans: You can offer all metal plans from all health insurers. Your employees can then choose any plan that s available in the county where they live. b. All plans at one metal level: For example, you can offer all Silver plans from all insurers. c. All plans from one insurer: For example, you can offer all of EmblemHealth s metal plans. d. Select metal plans from multiple insurers: For example, you can offer only Platinum and Silver plans from both EmblemHealth and another insurer of your choice. 3. Select your preferred method of premium contribution. You can choose to offer either: a. A fixed dollar amount (you choose the amount) OR b. A percentage of your employees premium (you choose the percentage) However, if you qualify for a tax credit you must contribute at least 50 percent of the premium cost of the lowest-priced self-only plan you choose on SHOP. Note: As a SHOP enrollee, you must offer SHOP coverage to all of your eligible employees without exception. 4. Select a coverage effective date. This is the first day your employees will be covered under the health plan they choose. 5. Expect notification from SHOP. In the month before the plan s effective date, SHOP will notify your employees via to tell them they can shop for coverage and how to do so. Want help enrolling? You can work with a New York State-certified broker or agent, or a New York State-certified Navigator, to get help enrolling on SHOP. See our Enrollment Assistance section on page 12 for more information. 2 3

5 CHOOSING PLANS Not sure which SHOP health plans are right for your group and employees? Here are some things to keep in mind. SHOP offers both standard and nonstandard small group health plans, including: Four types of standard metal plans (Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze): Each type of metal plan covers the same health benefits, but at different costs both premiums and out-of-pocket costs. All four plan types are offered by all health insurers participating on NYSOH. Each plan type has the standardized cost-sharing required by NYSOH. Various nonstandard plans: Nonstandard plans cover the same health benefits as the standard plans. But, unlike the standard plans, they do not have to conform to the cost-sharing required by New York State, and health insurers can choose whether to offer them. The metal plans carry a tradeoff between premiums and out-of-pocket costs. In general: Platinum and Gold plans have higher premiums, but lower out-of-pocket costs. So, if your employees visit the doctor often, they may want to consider one of these plans. Silver and Bronze plans have lower premiums, but higher out-of-pocket costs. So, if your employees don t visit the doctor often and want lower monthly costs, these plans may be better for them. Here are some things to consider when choosing a selection of plans for your employees: Employee needs: If your employees vary greatly in age, health status and how often they see the doctor, you may want to offer them a variety of metal plans so they can choose the plan that best suits their health needs. Where your employees live: Employees can sign up only for plans offered in their home county. But they can see any network provider, in any county, participating in their plan. So, if your employees live in several different counties, you may want to offer plans with a larger service area so they can see doctors close to home. EmblemHealth s Select Care network provides service in 28 New York counties including the five boroughs of New York City and its surrounding counties, plus upstate regions that stretch north of Albany. Your contribution: To contain costs, consider contributing a fixed dollar amount and offering plans at different metal levels. This way your employees can buy up and, in doing so, purchase plans at lower out-of-pocket costs. OUR SHOP OFFERINGS On SHOP, EmblemHealth offers four standard and three nonstandard small group plans. Each covers the same health benefits, but at different costs both premiums and out-of-pocket costs. Off SHOP, we have more plans for your small business. To learn more, contact us at emblemhealth.com/contact-us/sales.aspx. Or call us at , from 8 am to 8 pm, seven days a week (excluding major holidays). If you have a hearing or speech impairment and use a TTY/TDD, please call 711. EmblemHealth s standard metal plans on SHOP are: Select Care Platinum S: Highest premium, lowest out-of-pocket costs Select Care Gold S: Second-highest premium, second-lowest out-of-pocket costs Select Care Silver S: Second-lowest premium, second-highest out-of-pocket costs Select Care Bronze S: Lowest premium, highest out-of-pocket costs EmblemHealth s standard plans have the standardized cost-sharing required by New York State. EmblemHealth s nonstandard plans on SHOP are: EmblemHealth HMO 40/60 S: Highest premium, lowest out-of-pocket costs (similar to standard Gold plan) EmblemHealth HMO 35/55 S: Medium premium, medium out-of-pocket costs (similar to standard Silver plan) EmblemHealth HMO HD6300 S: Lowest premium, highest out-of-pocket costs (similar to standard Bronze plan) EmblemHealth designs the nonstandard plans itself.

8 EMPLOYEE HEALTH BENEFITS Health care reform ensures that all plans provide quality coverage for common health needs. That s why all small group plans cover the same health benefits. What makes them different is their costs both premiums and out-of-pocket costs. All group health plans cover: Preventive care at no added cost. Your employees will have 100% coverage for services like regular checkups, immunizations (shots) and screenings such as a colonoscopy, prostate exam, cervical screening and mammogram. They won t pay anything out of pocket for these services. 10 categories of essential health benefits. The specific benefits within these categories vary by state, so your employees would have the coverage offered in New York State. The 10 categories are: 1. Routine doctor visits 6. Prescription drugs 2. Emergency room visits 7. Habilitative and rehabilitative services 3. Hospital care 8. Laboratory services 4. Mental health and substance-use 9. Preventive and wellness services and treatment chronic disease management 5. Maternity and newborn care 10. Pediatric services, including vision care Gym membership reimbursement.

To be eligible, an employee must join or be a member of a participating health club or fitness center (not including tennis clubs, weight-loss clinics, spas or other similar places) and complete at least 50 visits within six months. Note: For some of the essential health benefits, your employees may need to meet the cost of their deductible before the health insurer starts paying, and they may need to get a referral from their primary care physician before getting the care.
