The 3 most popular SHOP plans in each state

Using data from Healthcare.gov, the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services provide the three largest small-group insurance products (ranked by enrollment) for each state. CCIIO and CMS released the data April 8 (for enrollments as of March 31, 2014) to "facilitate states’ selection of the benchmark plans that will serve as the reference plan for the essential health benefits," as required under the Affordable Care Act.

Note: According to CCIIO and CMS, the list "includes small group products that are open for enrollment as well as products that are closed but still approved for sale. Association products, closed products that are not approved for sale, and products that are not major medical plans are excluded from the list. Grandfathered and transitional products may be included on the list."
