Patients with behavioral health issues may also have complex medical needs. AvMed and our behavioral health partner, Magellan Healthcare, are able to provide co-management for your patients who require it. This co-management can be especially helpful for members with serious and persistent mental health issues.
AvMed’s Case Management department and Magellan’s Case Management department work together to ensure Members are getting the appropriate treatment needed for the co-management of behavioral health and medical health issues.
There are many benefits to this type of co-management, including improved continuity and coordination of care. The intervention of both behavioral health and medical case management can result in reducing gaps in care.
