Yamali has between 460 and 480 employees, but currently pays for insurance for only 125, because many of his workers are covered by their spouses’ or parents’ health plans. He’s worried that his costs will soar if more of his staffers want to join his plan.

"It scares me to think about it. If I had to buy insurance for everyone who works for us. We wouldn’t be able to be in business anymore."
