As we celebrate 75 years in business, we recognize that it is our members – the Kansas residents and communities – who worked together to help build our company into what it is today.

This is particularly true for BCBSKS member Elsie Cottrell, who has been a member of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas for all 75 years. Earlier this year, she invited us to her home in Meade, where she shared memories of the day in 1942 when Blue Cross came to town to sign people up for health insurance.
