The Great Flood of 2016

Due to the historic flooding in Ascension Parish and all over the state of Louisiana, the office at Trish Freeman Insurance Services is closed until further notice. Despite our best efforts, we are without power and the phone lines are down. We have suffered several inches of flooding inside the office but all employees are currently safe and dry. We will send out another email once the office is available to open again. We thank you for your business and hope everyone stays safe and dry during this state of emergency.

We promise to reopen as soon as possible. For now, the best way to reach us is via email:

Blue Cross offers FREE identity theft protection

Effective January 1, most Blue Cross plans offer FREE identity protection services to eligible members.

Are you eligible for identity protection services?

Active Blue Cross or HMO Louisiana group and individual members are eligible for free identity protection services. Members will not need to pay anything extra to sign up. Members are eligible as soon as their Blue Cross plans are effective, and are covered as long as they remain an active member.

You are not eligible for these services if you are on Medicare, Medicaid or Federal Employee Program.

Identity Repair Services

Identity repair is automatically available as needed. If you become a victim of identity theft, an AllClear investigator will act as your guide and advocate from start to finish until the issue is resolved.

Ongoing Identity Theft & Credit Monitoring Services

You must enroll in ongoing monitoring services; you will not be automatically enrolled. Enrollees will get:

  • Identity theft monitoring fraud protection services, in which data such as credit card numbers and Social Security numbers are scanned against data sources from security researchers that contain stolen and compromised data, to look for any indication that your data has been used inappropriately.
  • Credit monitoring services, which alert you if banks and creditors use your identity to open new credit accounts.
