Health care giant Centene settles with another state, California

Medicaid managed-care giant Centene has agreed to pay California $215 million to settle a drug-pricing scandal related to one that was initially detected in Ohio.

In a press release last week, California Attorney General Rob Bonta said that two Centene-owned managed-care plans, California Health & Wellness and Health Net, ripped off the state’s Medicaid system, Medi-Cal. They overcharged the system “by falsely reporting higher prescription drug costs incurred by two of its managed care plans,” the statement said.
