Centene has at times been an oddity among its health insurance peers. In the past few years, the company has remained steadfast in serving the Affordable Care Act’s individual insurance markets, despite what would seem like never-ending legal and political uncertainty surrounding the government program. Well, it seems the skeptics lost that bet. Centene's strategy, coupled with acquisitions that focus on government-affiliated health plans like Medicare and Medicaid, propelled the insurer to 24% revenue growth in 2019, compared with the previous year. And it may benefit from another financial tailwind to come: The firm reportedly expects billions of dollars in revenue growth this year, due to the coronavirus crisis.
