Magellan Clinical Practice Guidelines

Magellan develops or adopts clinical practice guidelines to assist providers in screening, assessing and treating 
common disorders. Prior to adopting each guideline, a multi-disciplinary panel—including board-certified psychiatrists
and clinical staff—examines relevant scientific literature and seeks input from network providers as well as consumers
and community agencies. Once implemented, Magellan reviews each guideline at least every two years for continued
applicability and updates guidelines as necessary. We report guideline changes through our online newsletter,
Provider Focus. 

Magellan’s adopted guidelines are intended to augment, not replace, sound clinical judgment. We welcome your feedback
and will consider all suggestions and recommendations in our next review. You may submit comments to your regional
Magellan provider advisory group, medical director or to To view our Clinical Practice Guidelines
