Employees under Kansas' State Employee Health Plan could see between 9 percent and 30 percent rate increases on their health insurance premiums next year, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. 

Individual health plans through Topeka-based Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas and Hartford, Conn.-based Aetna would increase 9 percent for state employees. For employees enrolled in family or spouse plans, premiums would rise 30 percent in 2017.

Under the proposed hikes, state employees with spouses also enrolled in their plans would pay $90 more each month for Aetna's low-deductible plans and $40 more each month for BCBSK's high-deductible plan, according to the report.

If approved, the rates would be effective Jan. 1.
