Small business owners have new options under state health exchange
Los Angeles Daily News

Small business owners who want to provide health care coverage for their employees can use a self-service option launched on the Covered California website Monday, one year earlier than the federal government’s version.

The Small Business Health Options Program ­— SHOP — on the state’s health care exchange is supposed to make it easier for California business owners with one to 50 employees to enroll and offer workers coverage as early as Jan. 1, said Peter Lee executive director of Covered California.
