Chamber Blue of Kansas Set to Transform Health Insurance Access for Small Business

LAWRENCE, KANSAS (August 5, 2022) – The Chamber, Lawrence announced a new partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS) and Chamber of Commerce Executives of Kansas (CCEKS) earlier this year. This partnership stitches together 50+ local Chambers of Commerce across Kansas to offer an Association Health Plan entitled Chamber Blue of Kansas.

Chamber Blue of Kansas is an association health plan (AHP) that allows for employers to join together to purchase insurance. The blarger pool of people enrolled in the plan allows the possibility for more plan options, and potentially, lower cost.

The initial rates will be based upon employers who complete an interest survey; completing the survey does not obligate your organization to enroll in the program but it does provide access to the initial group. The survey is live currently with a deadline of August 18, 2022, for all interested parties to submit.

In the two weeks since the survey link went live in Lawrence, there has been 83 organizations representing 820 employees complete the survey and at the state level, there has been 1,500 organizations complete the survey representing approximately 23,500 employees! This is the best opportunity and lowest barrier of entry for small employers to access large group health insurance.

The initial rates will be determined in September 2022 based on groups/businesses that have completed the survey and plans will become effective January 1, 2023. For more information please visit to view the Employer Guide, Benefit Brochure, and to review the eligibility criteria, plan options. To receive the survey link please contact Kathy Gerstner, Chief Operations Officer.
