For Providers

Adverse Incident Reporting

(Revised December 1, 2015.)

Providers are required to submit the Adverse Incident Reporting form to Magellan within 24 hours of an adverse incident occurrence.  This form serves to capture any reportable incidents involving a member of the LA Coordinated System of Care (CSoC) currently in treatment or discharged from treatment within 180 days prior to the incident. 

Magellan will serve as a resource to manage the clinical situation presented by the adverse incident or potential adverse incident and investigate all incidents in a timely manner.
