Centra’s live chat services will be temporarily unavailable beginning March 1, 2024, due to a Contact Center upgrade. Access to the automated chat, known as our virtual guide Sam, will also be unavailable. We anticipate launching our upgraded live chat in the second quarter of 2024. During this time, please reach out to us by calling 800-232-3642 or visiting Centra.org/contact-us. We appreciate your patience while we improve our system!
