Chamber Members

About the Community Health Plan

We’re extremely excited to announce that the Chamber will be offering its member businesses a great new benefit launched at the beginning of 2022. Our Chamber has partnered together with other Chambers of Commerce across the state of Kansas to create the Chambers of Kansas Community Health Plan. With the rising cost of healthcare, it can be difficult for small local businesses to offer their employees health insurance--and definitely affordable health insurance. This health plan, however, is specifically designed to diminish cost for its participants and maintain its cost sustainability over the long term. This plan is not designed to be an income-generator for the Kansas Chambers involved but is instead designed to best serve its local communities and the businesses and employees within them. Access to the plan will be available to Kansas businesses who are current Chamber members, along with their employees.
