Covered California pulls small employer portal; enrollment continues on paper
Sacramento Business Journal

Covered California pulled its SHOP enrollment portal offline Wednesday to fix problems and upgrade the site.

The portal is projected to be back online in the fall. In the meantime, enrollment will continue using paper applications. The shut down responds to complaints by small business owners and insurance brokers attempting to enroll them in the Small Employer Health Options Program.

The new version of the online portal is expected to increase efficiency and improve steps that determine eligibility, implement changes and issue invoices.
