This would be good for small businesses with only a few workers because it enables them to provide coverage for 4 or 5 workers at the same cost per worker as a large company with 400 or 500 workers. The cost of entry has always been the biggest barrier for small businesses because they are unable to negotiate the same discounts as a large employer so most just don't provide health insurance at all. For a small business with only a few workers the cost of providing healthcare can easily exceed the amount the employer pays in wages making it uneconomical to stay in business.
