Whole Health

Magellan values a whole health model of care in which an individual’s health and wellbeing are supported across behavioral, physical, and environmental factors. We are committed to promoting integrated care in our communities and building bridges with medical practitioners in an effort to improve care coordination and Member health outcomes. This page is designed to share the tools needed for medical practitioners and prescribers to assess behavioral health and provide referrals to resources.

Do you get your medications from a Primary Care Physician?

Your Primary Care Physician (PCP) can request a consultation with a Magellan medical director by calling the Magellan Provider Line, and identifying themselves as a treating medical provider. A PCP must complete an AUD form prior to a consultation, and the AUD form is available under Getting Care here.

Remember, you don’t have to do this alone.

For your doctor: You may tell your doctor to go to our Provider Whole Health page for more information to help you get better.

Stop Smoking

Quitting smoking isn’t easy. But if you smoke, quitting is the best thing you can do for your health. Smoking increases your risk for cancer, diabetes, heart failure, and other serious medical problems. Still, if you’ve been smoking for a long time, it can be very hard to quit. You might worry about withdrawal symptoms or that your craving for a cigarette might be too strong to ignore. But with some support, you can do it. Our resources can give you the help you need to finally quit smoking and start leading a healthier life today.
