Dec 2 (Reuters) - Health insurer Centene Corp said on Monday it would divest its Illinois unit, IlliniCare Health Plan Inc, to CVS Health Corp, as it looks to close its $15.27 billion deal to buy smaller rival WellCare Health Plans Inc.

The transaction entails the sale of Centene's Medicaid and Medicare Advantage lines of business in Illinois, the company said.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
