Question: I have a group and want to exclude dependent coverage so my employees can apply and receive a subsidy on the individual plans for there dependents, spouse and children. Is that possible and is the system set up to handle those options. As I understand all the insurance companies need to include dependents.
Answer: Yes. It is possible through Covered California SHOP right now. The employer has the option of excluding spouses and dependents. Expect carriers to follow soon.
