A map of The United States showing that from 2005-today, Centene expanded to 22 more states while diversifying into the Medicare and Marketplace programs as well.

FORTUNE magazine continuously ranks us as one of America’s fastest-growing companies. Between 2011 and 2020, Centene grew from 1.8M members in 12 states to 25.5M members nationwide.
