Apply for a Producer Contract

Here's how it works:

All applicants must first have a valid "C" license for the state of Louisiana. Visit for more information.

Step 1: Producer Profile Application
To apply for producer contracting, complete and submit the online Producer Profile. Each producer profile will be reviewed and approved or disapproved by a Blue Cross regional director. You may be contacted by a Blue Cross regional director to discuss your application. If you are approved for contracting as an individual sales producer, you will be mailed a training packet to complete.
