What does Centene do?

Centene Corporation is a Fortune 500 healthcare company which provides a portfolio of services to government-sponsored healthcare programs, focusing on under-insured and uninsured individuals. Many receive benefits provided under Medicaid, including the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), as well as Aged, Blind or Disabled (ABD), Foster Care and Long Term Care (LTC), in addition to other state-sponsored/hybrid programs and Medicare (Special Needs Plans).

The Company operates local health plans and offers a range of health insurance solutions. It also contracts with other healthcare and commercial organizations to provide specialty services including behavioral health management, care management software, correctional healthcare services, dental benefits management, in-home health services, life and health management, managed vision, pharmacy benefits management, specialty pharmacy and telehealth services.

Founded as a single health plan in 1984, Centene Corporation (Centene) has established itself as a national leader in the healthcare services field.  Centene’s core philosophy is that quality healthcare is best delivered locally. Their local approach enables them to provide accessible, high quality and culturally sensitive healthcare services to their members. They operate under a managed care model which utilizes integrated programs that can only be delivered effectively by a local staff, resulting in meaningful job creation within the communities we serve.

This statement can be observed day in and day out in the St. Louis region. Centene’s proposed Clayton Campus expansion ($770M) will bring 2,000 high-quality jobs to Clayton, with an average salary of $73,000 annually plus benefits (or $146,000,000 added to the local economy). Our office has seen an influx in Centene relocations to the Clayton area, and they are buying in to the luxury market.

With all of the talk around the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, one can’t help but worry about how this may impact Centene’s future. Comment your thoughts below!
