GLI partners with leading insurance providers to offer affordable employer-sponsored healthcare

Anthem plan supplements GLI’s existing partnership with Humana

Louisville, Ky. (July 11, 2023) – Greater Louisville Inc. (GLI) is pleased to announce the expansion of its health insurance cost-saving program for investors. Anthem ChamberAdvantage plan will join the long-running Humana HealthSolutions program as another option in a suite of Budget Solutions programs that help reduce costs for small and mid-sized businesses on some of their largest expenses.

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 GLI 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 GLI investors enrolled in Humana HealthSolutions will be able to renew and be fully covered through May 2024.

“For the last 7 years, Humana has provided unmatched quality and customer service to our investors,” said Sarah Davasher-Wisdom, president and CEO of Greater Louisville Inc. “Humana continues to be an integral partner in our work to grow the regional economy. As they wind down their commercial plans, we are excited to continue our partnership and work together to support our business community in new and exciting ways.”

“Humana is proud to be headquartered in Louisville and honored to be able to support the local businesses that make the city such a vibrant place to live, work and visit,” said John Littig, Senior Vice President of Humana’s Employer Group Medical business. “We look forward to continued collaboration with GLI in support of their investors and our community.”

ChamberAdvantage is now available as another option to all GLI investors At the time that Humana ceases renewals into the HealthSolutions program in 2024, Anthem will become the sole partner to GLI for health insurance coverage for its 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 GLI 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.”

Humana HealthSolutions and Anthem ChamberAdvantage are part of a full suite of group budget solutions programs available through GLI and participating vendors. Other products include InnoSolutions with Render, HRSolutions with HR Affiliates, V-Soft StaffingSolutions, and WCSolutions with Accident Fund Insurance Company of America.
