Magellan implements Suicide Risk Assessment protocol
Providers asked to review program expectations
Due to the unfortunate reality of an increase in suicides and suicide attempts over the past several years, Magellan’s clinical team implemented a new Suicide Risk Assessment protocol effective March 1, 2023.
Any member reporting a suicide attempt, an act of harm with intent to end their life, leading to or during an acute inpatient program (AIP) hospitalization will be included within this program.
Review a summary of the protocol and its impacts on all levels of care (PDF). We encourage you to share it with any colleagues who also support Magellan members.
Thank you for your care of Magellan members.
