Paid Time Off: The Centene paid time off program offers you flexibility to balance personal needs with job requirements. We believe that when you take time off, you return refreshed and more engaged in your work. Brush up on these basic rules around the Centene paid time off programs.

If you are full-time you are eligible for vacation, sick and company paid holiday time. If you are part-time with a regular work schedule between 20-29 hours per week you are eligible for vacation time. See 2022 Centene observed holidays.

Caregiver Leave: Caregiver leave may be available to you after 90 days of employment if you are a full-time employee. You are provided with 4 weeks of leave with full pay so you can take time to care for a family member with a serious condition or for new parents following the birth or adoption of a child.

Employee Assistance Program: When you need a helping hand, the EAP provides free, confidential counseling and referrals for you and your family. The EAP provides assistance with stress, substance abuse-related issues, work/life balance, child and elder care, and more. You are eligible for this benefit on your first day of employment.

Retirement Savings Program: Centene provides an opportunity for you to share in the company’s success through our 401(k) retirement match. You can contribute up to $20,500 in a Traditional and/or Roth 401(k) account. Centene matches 50% of the first 6% that you contribute per pay period. You are eligible to enroll in the Centene 401(k) plan at hire and can start, stop or change your election at any time during the year. In addition, if you take no action, you will automatically be enrolled in the 401(k) plan at a pre-tax deduction of 6% of eligible compensation after 31 days of employment. The 401(k) Plan is administered by Fidelity Investments.
