Centene and Molina Healthcare got a lift, but health insurers aren't rising across the board. The sector faces difficulties regardless of the decision.
Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC) has announced the winners of the Centene Institute Youth Impact Award for Vaping Prevention. The national program is a curriculum and contest for adolescents ages 14 through 19 to raise awareness about vaping, e-cigarette use and prevention. The three national winners from Ohio, Georgia and New Jersey were recognized for their exceptional work and received awards during a virtual ceremony on June 14, 2021.

For his final "Executive Decision" segment of Mad Money Wednesday evening, Jim Cramer checked in with Michael Neidorff, chairman and CEO of health plan provider Centene . Neidorff said that Centene's current focus is on expanding the company's gross margins, unlocking value and retiring debt to help bolster the balance sheet. When asked about the recent settlement in a case regarding their pharmacy benefit services, Neidorff explained that while Centene would have prevailed in the case, the time, distraction and cost of fighting it in 22 jurisdictions made settlement the better offer.
