Service Authorization Criteria
Magellan is committed to the philosophy of promoting treatment
at the most appropriate, least-restrictive level of care needed to
effectively meet an individual's needs. We see the continuum of
care as a fluid treatment pathway where individuals may enter
treatment at any level and be moved to more- or less-intensive
settings or levels of care as their changing clinical needs
dictate. At any level of care, treatment is individualized, active
and takes into consideration the individual's stage of readiness to
change and readiness to participate in treatment.
