Chamber Blue of Kansas helps make insurance more affordable for business owners


The Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber has partnered with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS) to offer businesses access to health insurance savings associated with large group medical coverage. Chamber Blue of Kansas is an association health plan (AHP) that allows for employers to join together to purchase insurance. The plan is open to employers who have two or more employees and are current, dues-paying members of the Hutch Chamber.

“This plan will allow our small businesses to access the buying power of a larger group,” said Debra Teufel, President & CEO of the Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber. “We are excited to see Chamber Blue of Kansas come online, as it could mean better health coverage at lower costs for many of the local businesses that make our community great.”

Chamber Blue of Kansas offers employers the ability to attract and retain top talent by increasing access and buying power of more than a single business alone. Employers and their most valued asset – their employees – will receive access to: 

  • A dedicated account management team with one-on-one support 
  • More choice in plan options 
  • Stability of rates with a larger pool of participants 
  • A uniform rate for the group based on average risk rather than rating each member individually 
  • Dental, life, disability, and ancillary coverage offerings will be available to complete your benefit package
