Superior HealthPlan Helps Member with Early Onset Dementia Create Memories
Member Stories, Health & Wellness
Centene was founded on a set of values that remains unchanged, and one of those is the belief that everyone deserves access to high-quality, affordable healthcare with dignity. Our deepest commitment is to keep our members at the forefront of everything we do.
Cori, a member of Centene's Texas health plan, Superior HealthPlan, needed support to navigate several health issues, but it was the diagnosis of early onset dementia that truly tested her. Care Manager Rhonda not only played a crucial role in recognizing initial symptoms, but she also immediately stepped in and provided a helping hand, allowing Cori to focus on preserving memories for herself and her 10-year-old son.
In this member testimonial video, see why Cori attributes the ability to gain back control of her life to Rhonda and the specialized care she provided.
Centene's commitment to care goes beyond standard healthcare by addressing each individual's needs and unique situation. Cori is one of half a million Americans under age 65 who have dementia or a cognitive impairment consistent with Alzheimer's. Many with early onset Alzheimer's and other types of dementia have higher rates of serious medical complications, are more likely to be hospitalized, and pay more out-of-pocket for prescription medication.
Cori's story helps counter the common belief that Alzheimer's and other types of dementia can only affect older adults. It's important to talk to your doctor if you have concerns about your memory, changes in behavior or mood, or overall cognitive function.
