Centene's Ethics and Compliance program guides employees when conducting the business affairs of the organization and stresses the tenet that "Compliance Is Everyone's Responsibility."

We are deeply committed to integrity, ethical decision-making and regulatory compliance across all of our businesses. Our Ethics & Compliance Program is designed to ensure our company maintains appropriate training, monitoring, oversight and enforcement of compliance laws, regulations and administrative rules to continue meeting the expectations of our government partners, providers and members.

We believe that each and every one of our employees is integral to maintaining the company’s reputation. Centene holds employees accountable to always take personal responsibility for choosing what is right. A culture committed to compliance is critical to our success, and only possible with the collective support of every employee. To create alignment and drive accountability across the organization, a compliance-focused goal is integrated into performance evaluations for all employees.

While no policy can replace the thoughtful behavior of an ethical director, officer or employee, we follow a Code of Conduct that, along with our culture of compliance, focuses our Board, management, employees and stakeholders on areas of compliance-related risk, offers guidance for recognizing and responding to ethical issues, outlines mechanisms to report ethics or compliance concerns, and fosters a culture of honesty and accountability.

From our Board of Directors to our member outreach teams, ethics and compliance are supported through fostering a collaborative culture. Watch as Centene leaders Kim Henrichsen and Dr. Alice Hm Chen highlight how cross-team collaboration fuels our mission to improve health outcomes.
