Grow Ellsworth County Chamber Blue

Grow Ellsworth County is excited to announce that we are partnering with over 59 other Chambers and like organizations in Kansas to bring Chamber Blue of Kansas health insurance. This Blue Cross Blue Shield large group policy should help small, medium, and even larger businesses lower their health care premiums and, at the same time, offer a variety of robust plans. 


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

The plan is open to employers who have two or more employees and are current, dues-paying members of Grow Ellsworth County.

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
