NU Online News Service, June 20, 12:15 p.m. – Centene Corp., St. Louis, Mo., says a subsidiary, Superior HealthPlan Inc., Austin, Texas, has agreed to buy a Children’s Health Insurance Program contract from Texas Universities Health Plan Inc., Austin.

The contract provides major medical coverage for 26,000 children in San Antonio, El Paso, Amarillo and Lubbock.

Texas regulators must evaluate the viability of the Centene service-area expansion before they can rule on the sale, Centene says.

CHIP is a government program that provides health coverage for the children of families that are too poor to afford commercial health insurance but have incomes too high to qualify for Medicaid.
