CCHN-logo_RGB header

Carolina Complete Health Network, Inc. (CCHN), a company formed to build and support a patient-focused, physician-led Medicaid health network, recently secured start-up debt financing from Centene Corporation, a diversified, multi-national health care enterprise.

Proceeds from the financing are intended to be used for expenses incurred by CCHN as it creates, recruits, builds and develops its Medicaid health network.

“This debt financing is a significant step in our Company’s formative stage and is expected to meet the Company’s requirements during this period,” said CCHN CEO and President, Jeffrey W. Runge, MD. “In addition, it re-affirms our selection of Centene as a joint venture partner in the formation of a North Carolina-based, physician-led Medicaid option.”

This financing comes in advance of CCHN’s previously announced expected public offering of its Class P Common Stock, pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Under the Regulation A offering, CCHN anticipates offering its Class P Common Stock to physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners licensed to practice in North Carolina and participating in CCHN’s Medicaid health network.

CCHN is a subsidiary of the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) formed for the purpose of establishing, building and maintaining a physician-led network of providers to serve Medicaid beneficiaries in North Carolina. CCHN will furnish provider network services to a new, NC-based health plan, Carolina Complete Health, to serve Medicaid beneficiaries with value-based models-of-care. This new health plan is the result of a collaboration of NCMS, the North Carolina Community Health Center Association, and Centene Corporation to provide a patient-focused approach to Medicaid under the reform plan enacted in the State of North Carolina
