2013 Annual Cash Incentive Plan and Related Performance Goals

On March 18, 2013, the Compensation Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors of WellCare Health Plans, Inc. (the "Company") established performance goals for fiscal year 2013 under the WellCare Health Plans, Inc. Amended and Restated Annual Cash Bonus Plan ("Annual Cash Bonus Plan") for our executive officers consisting of: adjusted earnings per share ("EPS"); selected Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set ("HEDIS") measures; and individual performance (collectively, the "2013 STI Performance Goals"). Achievement of the 2013 STI Performance Goals will be determined in the sole discretion of the Committee.

The target amount of each of our executive officers' annual cash incentive award will be based on a pre-established percentage of each executive's base salary as in effect on December 31, 2013, subject to proration based on the portion of the year the executive is employed, in the case of an executive hired during 2013, or based on the executive's annualized base salary and target percentage in effect prior to a change and the annualized base salary and target percentage in effect after a change, in the case of an executive who receives a target adjustment after the Company's annual compensation review process in February 2013. The amount of the award to be paid (not to exceed 200% of the executive's target amount) will be determined based on the degree to which the Committee, in its sole discretion, determines the 2013 STI Performance Goals have been achieved; provided that the Committee in its discretion may determine not to award any payout if it determines minimum levels of performance are not achieved. The awards, if any, related to EPS and individual performance will be paid by March 15, 2014. The awards, if any, related to HEDIS measures and individual performance are expected to be paid in the third quarter of 2014 when HEDIS results are determined.

Notwithstanding the specific 2013 STI Performance Goals established for fiscal year 2013, in making a determination as to whether or not awards will be paid, and the amounts of award payments, if any, the Committee may take into consideration factors such as unanticipated events, prior period reserve development, acquisition and expansion costs, non-recurring and extraordinary items, compliance matters and other equitable factors, as determined by the Committee in its discretion.
