As a Blue Cross employee, you may be eligible to participate in several excellent benefit programs.
The company provides many benefits at no cost to you and subsidizes the cost of providing these benefits. These benefits are in addition to your regular salary.
In addition to good working conditions and competitive pay, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana provides a comprehensive package of benefits to all eligible employees. Each benefit program has been carefully devised to meet a variety of employee needs. These benefits include time off benefits, such as Paid Time Off and holidays, insurance and more.
We are constantly studying and evaluating our benefits programs and policies to better meet our employees' current and future needs.
Health benefits include medical, dental, vision, life and disability coverage, health and dependent care spending accounts, long-term care coverage and an employee assistance program that provides free, confidential counseling services to employees and their families.
Please refer to your Employee Handbook for detailed information about benefits available to you.
Wellness benefits comprise a free, self-paced plan that offers Blue employees information, tools and incentives for making healthy lifestyle choices, including:
Wealth benefits include a bonus program, traditional 401(k) plan, a Roth 401(k) plan and a Retirement Plus program. Employees also enjoy the services of an on-site credit union and generous discounts on various products and services.
Paid time-off benefits are generous and include time for vacation and sickness as well as for community service through Team Blue.
This employee service program administered by our Community Relations staff allows employees to take time off during a work day to participate in a volunteer activity. We encourage and recognize employees who bring leadership to community service organizations through their volunteer efforts.
Blue Cross believes that community service is also an opportunity for employees to exercise or develop skills and talents that may not be used in their everyday jobs.
Work-life balance is crucial at Blue Cross, with benefits that include educational work-life sessions, stress management resources and flexible work hours to support and accommodate the diverse needs of employees' families, personal matters and unexpected life events.
The program includes:
Employees at our main campus in Baton Rouge enjoy the benefits of our Wellness Works fitness center, located on the first floor of the Customer Center building. The fitness center is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You may only exercise on your own time, such as on your lunch break or before or after work. Space and equipment are limited, so the fitness center is only available to employees.
In Louisiana, "lagniappe" is a well-known word that means "a little something extra." In addition to all of the above, Blue Cross offers lagniappe benefits like company-sponsored sports teams, a charitable gift matching program and a full-service cafeteria at our main Baton Rouge campus where spouses, family members and friends can join employees for breakfast and lunch. Employees and visitors can eat, have coffee and take breaks in the bright and airy Atrium or on an outdoor terrace overlooking a lake and fountain.
