Centene is expanding its footprint in South Carolina's health insurance exchange for 2021, offering plans in 30 counties. The state is requiring Medicaid providers to consult a drug tracking database before prescribing opioids to prevent abuse; providers that fail to comply with the new regulation could lose Medicaid payments. Commercial enrollment growth has stagnated in the state, while there has been some uptick in the Medicaid dual-eligible program's numbers.
