I was very excited to be part of the launch of the latest New Orleans Health Innovators Challenge recently.
Earlier this fall, I spent some time on the road traveling to every big city in Louisiana. Every year, we bring together all of the brokers, agents and consultants that do business with Blue Cross.
When I was a little boy growing up in Morgan City in the 1960s, I had a baseball coach who seemed like he was 100 years old! “Coach Charlie” had been coaching Little League in our town for 30 years, and I was lucky enough to be on one of his teams right before he hung it up.
One out of every three people in Louisiana has a Blue Cross card in their pocket. What does that mean to us here at Blue Cross? Today, we’re taking you behind the scenes at our Fall 2018 Sales Caravan for brokers who work with employers and individuals who do business with Blue Cross.
I hope you’ve got your ears on today! Medicare Annual enrollment is happening now and will continue through Dec. 7. If you are currently on Medicare, this is the time to make changes to your plan, if you want to. That means you’ll need information to decide if the plan you are on is right for you.
