Do you know what the impact is going to be on Meridian employees and is Wellcare going to have layoffs there?

Are there any layoffs planned for Meridian Heath aka Wellcare for employees serving Michigan and Illinois? I would appreciate any updates anyone has. Thank you!
Meridian IT received many layoffs/RIFs a couple weeks ago. It’s coming.
Sr. Leadership has been told to maintain the same “no RIFs” message throughout the company to reduce headcount loss while they’re still waiting for final deal approval.
It’s coming. The new employee handbook set the stage for all that is to come.
They also want to sell when stock prices are at a high so it is better for Centene. A former manager of mine who recently moved on to another company told us that there are going to be cuts before reviews and then more will swiftly by year end. Time to clean house of the dead weight at WellCare.
I was in the right place at the right time. October is when it will begin.
Review cycle was moved up to complete this year but it won’t end in September. Likely in December.
Additional cuts in IT at Meridian just took place.
Heard from an employee in Tampa that layoffs are expected in September after end of year reviews due to merger. Supposedly employees in Tampa, NYC, and South Carolina are in jeopardy. Not sure how true that is, BUT she did know our end of year reviews would take place in September months before it was announced. She’s been job searching and suggested I do the same.
Haven’t seen or heard of any layoffs and I’m a current employee. Everyone is too worried about the Centene merger.
