California handbook supplement now online for 2022

The California provider handbook supplement and related appendices are now online on Magellan’s* provider website. In California, Magellan currently manages benefits for members of the following plans:

  • Blue Shield of California
  • Western Health Advantage
  • Health Plan of San Mateo
  • Positive Healthcare California

Contracted providers must follow the policies and procedures outlined in handbook supplements, as well as those in the Magellan National Provider Handbook.

We encourage providers to review the handbook and supplement on a regular basis.

You can find the updated California supplement under State-Specific Information by choosing State-, Plan- and EAP-Specific Information under our News & Publications menu item. Note: We’ve retired the supplement specific to Blue Shield of California, but you can still find information about serving BSC members under Plan-Specific Information.


*In California, Magellan does business as Human Affairs International of California, Inc. and/or Magellan Health Services of California, Inc. – Employer Services.
