We're the state's oldest and largest domestic health insurer, founded in New Orleans in 1934. Born right here in Louisiana, we are a private, fully taxed mutual company owned by our policyholders — not shareholders.
Why is that important? Because we're customer-owned and don't need to pay shareholder dividends, we can and do make every decision based on what's best for our members.

Blue Cross is a member of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, a group of 38 independent Cross and Shield plans that collectively cover more than 100 million Americans. That's more than any other healthcare system in the country.
Our membership in this national Association means that the Blue Cross ID card is recognized and honored nationally and in more than 200 countries around the world.
It's purposeful, challenging and rewarding. Most of all, it's service-oriented. There's an unmistakable mentality here, and it's contagious.
We take great strides to ensure our employees have the resources to live well, be healthy, continue learning, develop skills, grow professionally and serve our community. You'll not only feel like part of our company, but part of our membership.
If you work at our headquarters in Baton Rouge, you'll be a short walk away from our fitness center, credit union, café, outdoor green space, Learning Institute and more. You'll find when you work for Blue Cross, you'll stay with Blue Cross.
Blue Cross employs nearly 2,000 Louisianians in our Baton Rouge headquarters and in our eight district offices across the state. You will find professional co-workers who strive to go above and beyond our members' expectations.
