About Magellan of Iowa

Iowa Report to the Community

Since 1995, Magellan Behavioral Care of Iowa, Inc. has been an integral component of Iowa’s behavioral health system. We partner with the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) to manage the Iowa Plan for Behavioral Health, a single managed care plan for mental health and substance abuse services.

Magellan has a strong local commitment to the residents of Iowa and, as the nation’s leading manager of behavioral health services, brings significant expertise, knowledge and experience to the Iowa Plan. Working closely with our state partners, our provider network, our communities and all of our stakeholders, we provide behavioral health coverage monthly for more than 406,000 children, youth and adults who live with mental illnesses and/or individuals who live with substance abuse challenges.

The Iowa Report to the Community celebrates the successes of our members, providers and community stakeholders - often in their own words. See below for the full report.
