This is the Magellan website for behavioral health providers
Magellan Health


When an authorization of care is required, our philosophy is to base authorization on a thorough assessment of the member’s unique needs to be delivered at the least-intrusive appropriate level, and to do so in a timely and efficient manner.

For most plans Magellan manages, routine outpatient visits do not require pre-authorization or concurrent review. You simply file your claim and respond to any outreach calls from a Magellan, should such occur. 

For facility and non-routine outpatient services: To request inpatient member care or non-routine outpatient services, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, psychological testing, residential treatment, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient, sign into this website and select Request Member Care

If you have any questions about coverage and whether pre-authorization is necessary for the service you are providing, contact us at the number on the member’s benefit card.

Public sector (e.g., state-sponsored or government-funded) programs: Authorization requirements vary. Visit Magellan's website for the member’s particular state for more information -- Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wyoming.
