ALERT! A Year-Long Delay of Online Enrollment for Small Businesses

The Obama administration announced today a year-long delay of online enrollment for small businesses looking to purchase health coverage through federal-run exchanges, according to reports.
An HHS notice, reported by Politico, says the Department will continue serving small employers offline “while we concentrate on both creating a smoothly functioning online experience in the SHOP Marketplace, and adding key new features, including an employee choice option and premium aggregation services, by November 2014.” Small businesses have been able to apply through paper applications since Oct. 1.

Last month, HHS said online enrollment would be available “sometime in November.” 
The delay applies only to the federal-run SHOP exchanges in almost three dozen states.
