Excitement, fear, hope, apprehension – these are all emotions you feel when starting a small business. At least, that’s how I felt when I started mine, and I’ll be the first to admit that the last thing on my mind when I started Kimera, my video production company in Reno, was health insurance benefits.

I was what the insurance industry calls an “invincible kid” – I’m relatively healthy and thanks to the Affordable Care Act I was able to stay on my parents’ insurance until the age of 26. After that I focused on the scam and growing my business. Premiums, deductibles, and copayments weren’t necessarily at the top of my priority list. I only had one other employee at the time and offering perks of any kind just wasn’t in the cards for me as a business owner just trying to get my foundation started.
