Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust Honors Centene Corporation With 2013 Leadership Award

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust, in collaboration with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF), has selected Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC), a national leader in the healthcare services field, as the recipient of the CBC Health Braintrust Fall 2013 Corporate Leadership Award . The award recognizes Centene Corporation for its significant contributions to reducing racial and ethnic, geographic and other health disparities and for assuming a leadership role in efforts to achieve health equity.  Congresswoman Donna Christensen, Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust, presented the Corporate Leadership Award to Centene during the CBCF Annual Legislative Conference which was recently held in Washington, D.C.

In announcing the selection of Centene Corporation as the 2013 Corporate Leadership awardee, Congresswoman Christensen noted, "This award is truly about honoring companies that have made a very significant contribution not only to the efforts of the CBC Health Braintrust, but – perhaps more importantly – to efforts to reduce health disparities and achieve health equity."  The Congresswoman continued, "The Centene Corporation is one such company and I am pleased to honor and applaud Mr. Neidorff and his team."

Centene Corporation operates health plans in 18 states, coordinating the delivery of health care and specialty services for more than 2.7 million individuals. Many of these individuals receive benefits provided under state Medicaid programs, in addition to other state-sponsored/hybrid programs, and Medicare (Special Needs Plans). The Company also contracts with other healthcare and commercial organizations to provide specialty services.

Centene has received numerous awards for its clinical programs such as Start Smart for Your Baby®, which focuses on the health of pregnant women and babies.  The company has also developed initiatives that target specific health conditions such as asthma and diabetes, and has been recognized for its health literacy and education programs.
