Centene Corp. (NYSE: CNC) on Tuesday credited its first-quarter revenue increase to program expansions in Illinois, Florida and other states, along with its acquisition of Fidelis Care last year.
Centene Corp on Tuesday raised its earnings and sales forecast for the year and said it had begun early discussions with regulatory authorities regarding its planned acquisition of smaller rival WellCare Health Plans . On a conference call with analysts, Centene said that it might have to make some divestitures in Nebraska and Missouri in order for the proposed $15.27 billion deal to go through. The company, which expects to close the deal in the first half of next year, hopes the acquisition will help bulk up its government-backed Medicare and Medicaid businesses.
