Job Description

I now think I’ve had enough experience on my job to write a job description that sums up what I am doing. My title is Contract Negotiator, but I use Network Development Specialist in the field.

The job description I am currently using is:

Responsible for building a Medicaid managed care health plan with estimated annual revenue of $367 million and anticipated membership of 215,000 by developing outreach strategies, building long-term relationships, and negotiating contracts for select categories of providers. Successfully managed projects related to corporate Network Development compliance activities to guarantee conformity with state requirements, creating policies and procedures, collaborating on key measures such as the company’s Network Development and Management Plan, and leading work with numerous internal departments. Created resources to assist in developing new markets and provider training.

  1. Hi Joel, I was researching Centene Corporation in Baton Rouge and ran across your blog.
    I see you come to Baton Rouge frequently. I would love to invite you to stay at Homewood Suites by Hilton. We are just off Corporate Blvd with easy access to I-10. We offer large apartment style suites which are great for people who travel alot. We also include a large breakfast buffet 7-days a week and dinner with wine and beer Monday-Friday.
