Approval of 2013 Incentive Compensation Plan

On May 22, 2013, the stockholders of WellCare Health Plans, Inc., (the "Company") approved the WellCare Health Plans, Inc. 2013 Incentive Compensation Plan (the "2013 Plan"). With the adoption of the 2013 Plan, no further grants will be made under the WellCare Health Plans, Inc. 2004 Equity Incentive Plan (the "2004 Plan").

The 2013 Plan has 2.5 million shares available for issuance, minus any equity awards that were granted under the 2004 Plan after January 1, 2013 and before the date of approval of the 2013 Plan, plus any awards forfeited under the 2004 Plan since January 1, 2013. Any other shares subject to awards that are forfeited under the 2004 Plan or the 2013 Plan after approval of the 2013 Plan also will be added to the 2013 Plan's shares available for issuance.

Under the 2013 Plan, the Compensation Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors (the "Board") of the Company is authorized to grant stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, dividend equivalents, and other stock-based awards to officers, directors, employees or consultants who provide services to the Company or its subsidiaries.

The Company may cause the cancellation of any award, require reimbursement for any award by a participant or beneficiary, and recoup equity or other compensation provided under the 2013 Plan in accordance with any clawback policy.

If a participant in the 2013 Plan, without the Company's consent, violates a non-competition, non-solicitation or non-disclosure covenant or agreement, then the Committee may, in its discretion, cancel any outstanding awards or require the repayment of any gains or value of the award.

Without the approval of the stockholders, the Committee is not permitted to lower the exercise price of a stock option or grant price of a stock appreciation right, after it is granted, or take any other action that may be treated as a repricing pursuant to the applicable rules of the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE").

The 2013 Plan will terminate at the earliest of (i) such time as no shares remain available for issuance under the 2013 Plan, (ii) termination of the 2013 Plan by the Board, or (iii) May 22, 2023.
