Magellan To Present At New York Health Plan Association Autism Seminar

In 2011, New York State passed legislation requiring insurance coverage for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a complex developmental disorder that affects one in 88 children in the United States. With this legislation, New York joins 30 other states that have implemented laws to assist families with managing the complex coordination of care required for children with ASD.

To help health plans address this new legislation, Magellan Health Services’ Chief Medical Officer for Behavioral Health, Gary M. Henschen, M.D., will present “Autism Service Providers: Developing a Treatment Team” at the New York Health Plan Association’s Autism Mandate Seminar on July 31, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hotel Albany. The presentation will outline professional criteria and quality standards to include in administering a provider network for the treatment of ASD. Dr. Henschen will discuss the importance of team development to promote integrated care.

Magellan Health Services Inc. (NASDAQ: MGLN) has been managing care for individuals with autism since 2008 through a program called Magellan Autism Connections®, developed in accordance with the American Academy of Pediatrics practice guidelines. Autism Connections helps payers, providers and families manage the complex clinical care needs for individuals with ASD, a challenge that has become increasingly important as legislation dictates specific requirements for care.

“The proper treatment for ASD requires a collaborative team of specialists who can provide the full spectrum of care to the child and his or her family,” said Dr. Henschen. “Magellan’s goal is to help health plans formulate a strategy specific to their own states’ requirements to manage a comprehensive network of specialty providers and community resources in order to provide high quality, affordable care.”
