Maintaining benefits

Hi. I am researching starting an assisted living facility. My biggest concern at venturing out is not whether I make money or not, but losing my benefits at my current job. The business I plan to start does not require me to have many employees and I have heard that I would need to have at least 5 employees to get health insurance for a business. Is this so? If not, any suggestions and are there issues, for example, I have hypertension managed by medication and I am diabetic. Will this prevent me from getting insurance with my business. The cobra insurance through my company, currently runs $2000 a month. Also, I am new to this forum and if there is somewhere else on here where benefits are discussed, please direct me there.
