Catholic Health Initiatives, parent of Nebraska-based CHI Health, completed a merger with San Francisco-based Dignity Health, creating the nation 's largest nonprofit health system by operating revenue and inpatient volume. The merger gives CHI Health a national platform to strengthen the integrated delivery network 's position in value-based care. Since merging with Aetna, CVS Health has begun investing in models to address community wellness and has launched virtual visits at clinics in Omaha, expanding access to convenient care. Major managed Medicaid players Centene and WellCare are also pursuing a merger, and Anthem will be joining Nebraska 's Medicaid managed care program, which will expand coverage eligibility to an estimated 90,000 low-income Nebraska residents in 2020.
