Centene is honored to be ranked number seven on FORTUNE's 2019 Change the World List in recognition of our Provider Accessibility Initiative (PAI). Centene launched the PAI in 2017 to assist those living with disabilities and their companions in accessing quality healthcare. Designed in collaboration with the National Council on Independent Living, the program is the first of its kind. The initiative focuses on transitioning healthcare delivery into a fully accessible system by removing barriers to care and service in healthcare offices.

The video below highlights how the PAI reflects Centene's commitment to providing accessible, high-quality healthcare to our populations most in need.



What truly makes this initiative so impactful is its ability to increase access to care, not only for Centene's membership, but for the community as a whole. The PAI has improved the lives of more than 123,000 Centene members and thousands more who visit the offices we've worked to improve. 

By partnering with providers, industry leaders, and regulators, the PAI is a prime example of Centene's ability to enhance the health of communities. We look forward to improving the lives of our members, friends, and neighbors for years to come.
