Health Net and Centene Combine
Health Net and Centene today announced that they will combine to create a leading diversified health care services enterprise with more than 10 million members across the country. The transaction is subject to regulatory review, shareholder approval and other customary closing conditions. Details are in our news release.
Our two organizations will immediately begin seeking all necessary regulatory approvals, and we expect it to close in early 2016.
Through all the upcoming activities, Health Net will continue being laser-focused on the needs of our customers and brokers, who both have come to depend on us for quality, affordable health insurance coverage and service.
We are working hard to ensure that our customers and business partners experience a seamless transition of services, and Centene shares this commitment.
Our combined organization will be better equipped to address new business opportunities from the Affordable Care Act, bringing greater scale and operational resources to the commercial, Medicare, Cal MediConnect, and Medicaid expansion programs so vital to the success of our country’s health care future.
