The Obama administration will delay online ACA enrollment for small businesses in federally operated healthcare exchanges until November 1st, one month later than planned. However, the effective date of coverage under the SHOP, marketplace for small businesses, will remain January 1, 2014.

Please note, Stellar Benefits Group will still have access to the SHOP plans and rates effective October 1st and will be contacting you with your options.
