Get paid sooner when you sign up for direct deposit

Magellan’s provider handbook specifies that network providers must register for electronic funds transfer (EFT) for direct deposit.* Most of you have already made the transition to EFT and are reaping the benefits!

If you haven’t enrolled yet in EFT, what’s stopping you?

It is fast, easy, and secure. And the trees will thank you.

In September, Magellan paid 99.48% of claims within 30 days, whether we paid electronically or by check. With EFT, though, you could be getting your payment sooner because you aren’t waiting for the check in the mail. And you won’t have to make a run to the bank to deposit your check when it arrives.
