Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Missouri)

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Missouri)

Covering 32 counties stretching across northwest Missouri, greater Kansas City and the Kansas counties of Wyandotte and Johnson, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City is a formidable name in the health insurance industry in the United States. As an independent licensee under the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA), this organization offers a number of products and services that come with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield brand tag. With a seven decade long legacy behind it, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City has retained its stature as the biggest health insurance company in the city and lived upto its name.

1938 was the year when the first seeds of the organization were sown when Group Hospitalization Services saw light of day. Back then a hospitalization plan was an invention and sorts and that is exactly what the Group Hospital Services was meant to be. It started with two employees and some capital pooled by local hospitals, doctors and even individuals. The rage called health coverage caught up and by the end of that very year, Group Hospitalization Services had ten hospitals within its network and it served as many as 14, 000 people. Group Hospitalization Services was later given the name “Blue Cross of Kansas City”. In 1943, the Kansas City Blue Shield was initiated as an effort to start a plan with prepayment facilities. In a year’s time it had 14, 000 members availing its benefits. Kansas City Blue Shield proved its innovative capacities in 1950 when it introduced group plans for the first time ever in the United States. Finally in 1982, Blue Cross of Kansas City and Kansas City Blue Shield came together to form the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City.
