Officials at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are expecting 200,000 small U.S. employers to apply to participate in Small Business Health Option Program (SHOP) exchanges in 2014.

The number of employers that submit SHOP exchange applications could fall to 133,333 in 2015, then jump back up to 200,000 in 2016, CMS officials say in an information collection notice that appears today in the Federal Register.

CMS officials put the two proposed SHOP data collection efforts in a collection activities notice that included a total of four new PPACA exchange collection activities.

For the SHOP program, CMS expects to have to set up an eligibility determination and enrollment process for small employers and an eligibility determination and enrollment process for the small employers' employees.
