No, but the benefits package as a whole is a viable way to attract and retain quality employees vs the competition. And it is not a tiny portion, most employers spent 20-30% of an employees salary/wages on health insurance. That is not including 401k match, dental, life, paid time off, etc.

Most companies are smart enough to not hire a full time employee to fill a position that is only needing to be filled an average of 1-2 days a week.
