Small businesses in the U.S. are a substantial part of our economy, creating 75% of all jobs and employing over 60 million people. And yet, 22.3 million people who work for small businesses or are self-employed are uninsured, making up half of all uninsured Americans. While the current state of small business healthcare is bleak, there is a silver lining - individual health insurance reimbursement.
