Medical & Healthcare Resources

Blue Ridge Medical Center reaches out to businesses with 50 or less employees and those with part-time employees to share information on the newly created Small Business Health Options Plan (SHOP) by which employers could offer affordable health insurance to their employees and potentially be eligible for a 50% tax credit.

The SHOP marketplace was created through the Affordable Care Act and offers financial incentives for employers, essential health benefits for employees and a streamlined yearly process of re-enrollment organized through the SHOP marketplace.
