Smaller companies paying the price


While many people who have started their own businesses have found success, a lot of them encounter the same problem: where to find affordable health care?

Josef Blumenfeld, who owns a global public relations firm in Natick, pays more than $16,000 annually for health care for himself and his family.

"Health insurance has become our second-largest expense behind our mortgage," he said. "It's definitely causing me to consider going back into the job market."

Blumenfeld was interviewed for a story on entrepreneurs and the rising cost of health care by the Indianapolis Star.
