About Us

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.
