Magellan of Montana

Welcome to Magellan of Montana

Since 2000, Magellan has served the behavioral health needs of adults and children in Montana’s Medicaid program, contributing to more cost-effective and quality care.

Utilization Management

In collaboration with the Montana Addictive and Mental Disorders Division (AMDD), we provide utilization management of adult mental health and substance use disorders (SUDs), including:

  • Promoting the appropriate use and level of services at the right time, for the right frequency and for the right duration
  • Identifying quality of care issues to ensure the most cost effective and highest quality services
  • Advocating for evidence-based best practices of SUD and mental health services, and participating in education and support of the provider community

Care Coordination

We work with the Montana Children’s Mental Health Bureau (CMHB) to provide care coordination services for youth in psychiatric residential treatment facilities, including:

  • Tracking of youth and guardian participation in aftercare services
  • Monitoring of compliance with the post-discharge plan
  • Identification of gaps in community-based services
