Small businesses and self-employed entrepreneurs in North Carolina spent almost $4 billion on heath care premiums in 2008 and will spend $9 billion a year in 2018  without comprehensive health care reform, according to Families USA.

The group has developed fact sheets on health care and small business for each state based on the research of MIT economist Jonathan Gruber.

North Carolina’s report(.pdf) finds that just 43 percent of businesses in the state with 50 or less employees offer insurance and that 63 percent of the state’s uninsured have jobs.
