WellCare Associates Give Back During National Volunteer Month

WellCare is a mission-driven organization where our associates believe in giving back to the communities where we live and serve.

However, it’s the dedication of our more than 9,000 associates that make WellCare’s community efforts unique. Approximately 75 percent of our associates participate in WellCare Associate Volunteer Efforts (WAVE) each year—more than double the national average. But equally as significant, many of our associates serve multiple times throughout the year. Volunteerism is embedded in our culture and serves as a beacon for how our associates choose to live our mission and our values.
