About Magellan Health Services

Magellan Health is a company that provides managed healthcare programs designed to improve the quality of patient care and reduce the associated costs. Some of the services available from Magellan Health include prescription management, behavioral healthcare programs and employee assistance programs. These products are sold separately to insurers. Thus, depending on your insurance policy, you may have coverage under one or more of Magellan's programs.

Understanding Magellan Health Services Compulsive Gambling Treatment Coverage

Not all of Magellan Health's programs provide coverage for compulsive gambling treatment. For example, while some behavioral healthcare programs and EAPs may provide this coverage, it won't be available through Magellan's prescription management program.

Keep in mind that, even if you don't have compulsive gambling treatment coverage from Magellan Health, your insurance policy may still provide treatment for compulsive gambling through another source.

Scheduling Treatment

Before you schedule compulsive gambling treatment, be sure to consider the following issues.

  • Types of Treatment Covered - Your policy may cover certain types of compulsive gambling treatment but not others. Find out what treatments are covered under your plan before you make an appointment.
  • Referral Requirements - Your plan may require you to obtain a referral from your primary care physician before beginning treatment.
  • Precertification Requirements - Depending on the type of treatment you need, you may need to obtain precertification from Magellan before you begin. Otherwise, you may not qualify for the maximum amount of Magellan Health Services Compulsive Gambling Treatment coverage.
  • Network Requirements - Some plans may require you to obtain treatment from in-network doctors and hospitals in order to qualify for coverage.

Coverage under Magellan Health plans may vary. To learn more about your coverage, consult your plan documents or call Magellan Health for more information.
