Health insurance is absurd because Wellcare eliminates it. For more than 20 years, Wellcare has offered a variety of Medicare products, including Wellcare Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs), which provide affordable coverage that extends beyond your original health insurance. In 2002, Patel sold it to a New York investment group led by George Soros and Todd Farha. In 2002, he also became CEO of the company.


More than 1.2 million Medicare Advantage members and 4.1 million PDP members in all 50 states receive quality, affordable and culturally appropriate healthcare through Wellcare today. We offer benefits to all Medicare beneficiaries, including dental, hearing and visual services, flexible payment cards, transportation services, telemedicine visits, wellness and fitness programs, home support services and specific benefits for the chronically ill.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Centene Corporation, Wellcare strives to improve the health of communities, one person at a time. Effective January 1, 2022, Centene’s Medicare brands, including Allwell, Health Net, Fidelis Care, Trillium Advantage, ‘Ohana Health Plan, and TexanPlus, will revert to the Wellcare brand.

With Centene’s acquisition of Wellcare Health Plans, we have become one of the largest managed care organizations in the United States, now serving 1 in 15 Americans! Available under the Ascension Complete, Allwell, Fidelis Care, Health Net and WellCare brands, our Medicare Advantage and Part D drug plans offer affordable options that let you not worry about tracking your Medicare-represented beneficiaries.


We care about our members and offer a wide range of products to serve members where they are and empower them to take responsibility for their health. As a seller, you are a vital link in ensuring members are aligned on a plan that will help them meet your needs. We hope you enjoy serving our members and our communities as much as we do.
