Look out! The provider appointment availability survey (PAAS) is coming your way in August 2021
If you provide behavioral health services for Magellan* members, please be on the lookout for the upcoming PAAS survey being sent to you via email. This survey asks you to share your next available appointment times for urgent and non-urgent services.**
While it might seem that we send you multiple requests to complete the same survey, that isn’t the case. If you receive a survey, it matters that we hear from you. It really does! By responding, you help to ensure Magellan members receive the best in care and services.
Keep in mind the PAAS survey is separate from – and in addition to – the Magellan National Provider Accessibility and EAP provider surveys. The separate Magellan surveys are also required. They allow us to assess the availability of our network providers to assist in appropriate member referrals and identify areas needed for further network development.
Thank you for participating in the Magellan network and responding in our surveys. You can glimpse a snapshot of our annual surveys schedule in the Spring 2021 issue.
