Background

Health insurance exchanges were established as a part of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to enable individuals to purchase health insurance in state-run marketplaces.[1] In this legislation, states could choose to establish their own health insurance exchanges; if they choose not to do so, the federal government would run one for the state.[1]

Small business

On October 27, 2014, the Illinois online small business marketplace (SHOP) was launched.[2] This exchange facilitates the use of Small Business Health Care tax credits.
