Psychological Testing is defined as the use of one or more standardized measurements, instruments or procedures to observe or record human behavior, and requires the application of appropriate normative data for interpretation or classification. Psychological testing may be used to either assist in differential diagnosis of psychiatric disorders or to assist in the assessment of response of those disorders to treatment.
Before testing is administered, a Request for Psychological Testing Authorization form is completed and submitted or the appropriate Magellan Care Management Center is called for authorization. The testing request form or telephone call must be completed and submitted to Magellan prior to testing. An administrative non-authorization will occur if preauthorization is not obtained in routine circumstances. The testing request form and instructions for completion may be obtained from the appropriate Magellan Care Management Center, or can be downloaded from this site.
