Magellan Cares

Together we are "One Magellan," a company with heart made up of people who care about doing the right thing to help our clients, our colleagues and our community.

Caring is one of our company values and serves as the foundation of the culture we foster. Four of Magellan's businesses are located here in Arizona, and employees from all four come together as One Magellan to volunteer in the communities where we live, work and play. In addition, we welcome the participation of family members, friends, provider and business partners as Magellan Cares volunteers.

Magellan is focused on giving back and supporting our community, in particular organizations that align with our key programs (Suicide Prevention and Intervention (including Bullying)); and Health, Wellness and Longevity including our Integrated Health Home (IHH); and our leadership principles (Voice; Family; Outcomes; Race and Equity; Provider Collaboration; and Community Integration). We support community initiatvies that are in line with these programs and principles and are critical to our mission to support and cultivate a healthy behavioral health care system in Central Arizona.

Additional Community Reinvestment Programs

dad and son.jpgMagellan is part of the communities we serve. Our 500+ employees work, live and play in the same neighborhoods where our provider, advocate and the individuals we serve do. Connecting, serving and giving back to our community is at the core of Magellan's values.  Through in-kind donations, volunteer work and drives to collect needed items for local food banks, community centers and shelters, our employees invest their time, share their expertise and recruit friends and family to do more.

Through our annual Computer Giveaway Program, we invest in helping our service recipients and families achieve their goals. Since 2008, Magellan Health Services of Arizona has given away more than 1,370 computers to service recipients, family members involved with their recovery, peer and family run agencies, and providers.

Additionally, through our Community Exchange program, we facilitate the free exchange of resources (items, services, etc.) throughout Maricopa County and parts of Pinal County. In 2010, Community Exchange facilitated the exchange of more $220,000 in resources from donors to recipients.

Community Reinvestment Initiative to Support Whole Health Programs for Adults and Children

Magellan Health Services of Arizona is funding innovative programs in Cenral Arizona that integrate physical health care services with general mental health services, for adults, and behavioral health services for children, to provide a whole health approach to health care for those challenged with mental illness. While significant attention has been paid to the life-span disparity and poor health outcomes of adults with a Serious Mental Illness (SMI), integrated care is an important initiative across all behavioral health populations, and Magellan's goals are to enhance coordination, improve outcomes and lower costs through these initiatives.

Through these community reinvestment awards, Magellan supports four provider organizations with programs and models of care that strengthen the whole health of adults and children, with a focus on improving the prevention, early intervention and self-management of chronic conditions. Magellan looked for innovative and creative proposals that incorporate the cornerstones of its health and wellness initiative: early and enhanced collaboration, shared governance and accountability, voice and participation, and prevention and early intervention.

As part of this community reinvestment initiative, Magellan awarded $3 million total, which included four competitive awards of $750,000 each: three awards to organizations serving adults receiving general mental health and/or substance abuse treatment services, and one award to an organization serving children, adolescents or young adults ages five to 18.

Adult General Mental Health/Substance Abuse:

  • Jewish Family & Children's Service (JFCS)
  • TERROS
  • Valle del Sol

Child/Youth:

  • Valle del Sol 

Magellan's goal is to reinvest in sustainable programs that have long-term, positive and strategic impact to the system of care in Central Arizona. Additionally, Magellan looked for proposals that included reliable and valid nationally recognized tools for measurement and evaluation of behavioral health, physical health and the link between the two.
