Welcome to Magellan of Idaho

Magellan Healthcare is committed to the state of Idaho and helping its citizens live healthy, vibrant lives. We’ve been providing a range of products and services while supporting and leading important community initiatives since 2004. We currently serve citizens with our employee assistance programs and pharmacy benefit management, so we are excited to participate in Idaho’s procurement opportunity to administer the Idaho Behavioral Health Plan. Drawing on our successful experience in partnering with stakeholders to deliver high-quality behavioral health programs across the country, we are confident we can get Idahoans the care they need, improve member health and help families thrive as a responsible steward of taxpayer dollars.
