Centene Reports Marketplace Growth, Medicaid MLR Miss in 3Q

Centene Corp. reported sterling results in the third quarter of 2023, with the firm exceeding its quarterly earnings target and executing $773 million in share repurchases in that time. Executives promised further improvement on Medicare Advantage Star Ratings and touted notable individual marketplace enrollment growth during the quarter.

Centene executives credited the strong results to membership growth and low utilization in the firm’s Affordable Care Act marketplace book of business. Executives also said that the firm, which mainly has members who are enrolled in managed Medicaid plans, has capably weathered the return of eligibility redeterminations, which were suspended during the bulk of the COVID-19 public health emergency and resumed in the spring. The firm’s total Medicaid enrollment during the third quarter declined by only 2.9% year over year to 15.24 million members.
