Commerce Lexington Partners With Leading Insurance Providers to Offer Affordable Employer-Sponsored Healthcare
Anthem plan supplements Commerce Lexington’s existing partnership with Humana
[Lexington, KY] – Commerce Lexington is pleased to announce the expansion of its health insurance cost-saving program for investors. The Anthem ChamberAdvantage plan will join the long-running Humana HealthSolutions program as another option for Commerce Lexington members to lower their health insurance costs.
Like Humana HealthSolutions, Anthem ChamberAdvantage offers small and mid-sized businesses health plan benefits and significant cost advantages typically enjoyed by large businesses. ChamberAdvantage, a product of the Kentucky Chamber, is a self-funded insurance plan for small businesses with 2-50 employees. The plan focuses on member whole health with dedicated behavioral health and chronic condition wellness programs, and a host of digital tools to improve access to health care and information.
Humana HealthSolutions has been offered by Commerce Lexington since 2017 and has helped save local small businesses money while offering quality health insurance to our community. However, Humana will be phasing out its commercial medical insurance plans and current Commerce Lexington investors enrolled in Humana HealthSolutions will be able to renew and be fully covered through May 2024.
Commerce Lexington Inc. president and CEO, Bob Quick, said, “The Humana HealthSolutions program has been great for our members over the last several years, and we have appreciated the quality products and customer service. We are very excited that our organization will be able to continue offering cost-savings on health insurance to our members in the future through the Anthem ChamberAdvantage program.”
ChamberAdvantage is now available as another option to Commerce Lexington small and mid-sized members. At the time that Humana ceases renewals into the HealthSolutions program in 2024, Anthem will become the sole partner to Commerce Lexington for health insurance coverage for its member investors. ChamberAdvantage, offered through the Kentucky Chamber, is one of the largest multiple employer welfare arrangements (MEWA) in the country and currently serves over 3,400 small businesses throughout the state.
“We are proud to partner with all local chambers across the state to offer cost-saving products like ChamberAdvantage to small businesses in the Commonwealth,” said Ashli Watts, president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber.
“We are excited to work together with Commerce Lexington to continue offering affordable access to health care for this region’s businesses and their employees,” said Kennan Wethington, president of Louisville-based Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Kentucky. “In a difficult inflationary environment, ChamberAdvantage is a powerful tool allowing small and mid-size businesses to offer comprehensive health plans.”
