Founded as a single health plan in 1984, Centene Corporation (Centene) has established itself as a national leader in the healthcare services field. Today, through a comprehensive portfolio of innovative solutions, we remain deeply committed to delivering results for our stakeholders: state governments, members, providers, uninsured individuals and families, and other healthcare and commercial organizations.
Centene's core philosophy is that quality healthcare is best delivered locally. Our local approach enables us to provide accessible, high quality and culturally sensitive healthcare services to our members. Our managed care model utilizes integrated programs that can only be delivered effectively by a local staff, resulting in meaningful job creation within the communities we serve.
In addition to operating locally-based health plans in the states we serve, Centene offers a full range of healthcare solutions for the rising number of uninsured Americans. We also contract with our health plans and other healthcare and commercial organizations to provide specialty services such as behavioral health, life and health management, managed vision, telehealth, pharmacy benefits management and medication adherence.
Building a Responsible Enterprise
At Centene, corporate social responsibility means more than philanthropy. It encompasses how our values and mission are intertwined into our everyday business practices. It addresses how we manage our economic, social and environmental impacts, as well as our relationships in all key spheres of influence: the workplace, the marketplace, the delivery chain, the community, the industry and the public policy realm.
For over 25 years, we have conducted business with the following objectives in mind, which we believe are core to being a good corporate citizen:
- Community investment
- Philanthropic work
- Staff development
- Corporate governance, transparency and accountability
Centene demonstrates this commitment through:
- Community Involvement
- The Centene Charitable Foundation
- The Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare
- Green/Sustainability Efforts
According to the U.S. Census Bureau there are 83 million individuals covered by government health insurance and another 45.7 million uninsured. State decision makers have a vital role in ensuring access to quality and affordable healthcare. Decisions that states face regarding healthcare are complex and require balancing the needs of many individuals. Centene works with states to create innovative solutions that are unique and address the distinct needs of these populations. Centene has the resources to provide customized solutions to our state partners through extensive experience in the Medicaid industry and uninsured market, as well as a portfolio of specialty health solutions.
