Fostering Culturally Competent Care

Centene has a long-standing partnership with the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA), which works to improve the health of Hispanic communities and other underserved populations. Centene and our health plans provide a range of support to the NHMA, including participating in its annual conference. This year’s conference focused on social determinants of health and well-being. Ambetter Health introduced conference attendees to the Stay Healthy Zone, a digital health and wellness platform tailored to assist individuals with meeting wellness goals.

Centene subsidiaries Ambetter Health, Meridian, and Wellcare participate in the Annual Fiesta del Sol festival in Pilsen, a prominent Latino community in Chicago, Illinois. This event highlights the Latino culture and history, and provides an economic stimulus to the small businesses, local non-profit organizations, and scholarship recipients. For the past two years, employee ambassadors have contributed more than 80 hours of community service to this event, positively impacting thousands of people.
