On the day before Thanksgiving, the Obama administration quietly announced plans to delay another part of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP, in states with a federally run health insurance marketplace.

SHOP is intended to help small business owners obtain health plans for themselves and their workers. However, according to a Nov. 27, 2013, online posting by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), employers who purchase small group coverage won't be able to buy plans online through a federal SHOP exchange until November 2014 for plan year 2015. HHS also posted a set of questions and answers on how the federal SHOP would function, in a limited capacity, through 2014.
