Datapoint: Centene Settles S.C. Pharmacy Lawsuit

Centene Corp. agreed to pay the state of South Carolina nearly $25.9 million to settle allegations it overcharged the state’s Medicaid program for pharmacy services. Centene did not admit any wrongdoing in the settlement, which South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announced in a Dec. 29 press release. Centene has settled similar allegations with several other state Medicaid programs and said in 2021 that it had set aside $1.25 billion to settle such lawsuits. Centene is currently the second-largest Medicaid managed care insurer in South Carolina, serving 215,477 lives.
