Centene Corporation Logo

NCIL is pleased to announce the continuation of the Barrier Removal Fund (BRF) in 2020. NCIL and the Centene Corporation are committed to providing equal access to quality health care and services that are physically and programmatically accessible for our members with disabilities and their companions by increasing the percentage of Centene providers that meet minimum federal and state disability access standards. Since 2018, the Barrier Removal Fund has provided over $1M in grants to fund accessibility improvements at healthcare providers in six states (Illinois, Texas, Ohio, Florida, New Mexico, and Kansas).

Centene, NCIL, and 3 affiliate health plans are collaborating to continue the Provider Accessibility Initiative (PAI) in three new states for 2020: California, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. Read more about the Provider Accessibility Initiative.
