Chamber Blue of Kansas
The Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that we are partnering with over 37 over Chambers in Kansas to bring Chamber Blue of Kansas health insurance. This Blue Cross Blue Shield large group policy should help small, medium, and large businesses lower their health care premiums and, at the same time, offer a variety of robust plans.
By Blue Cross Blue Shield estimates, this plan has the potential to have between 3,000 to 6,000 policies. That is great "buying power" to help keep costs lower, and most importantly, keep costs more steady year to year. As an association health plan, Chamber Blue of Kansas is working with Kansas Chambers to provide organizations like yours access to health insurance savings associated with large group medical coverage.
