Sharing your ethnic background and spoken languages helps improve members' access to care

Fact: Seventy-five percent of Magellan providers currently share their ethnic origin with members.

Do you?

Help improve members’ access to appropriate care by sharing your ethnic background, as well as the languages in which you can perform therapy.

Sharing your ethnic background is a personal choice and completely voluntary. Perhaps you already mention this information in your provider profile statement, and that’s great! We intentionally ask for this information on our Provider Data Change Form (PDCF) to support a diverse and culturally competent provider network. In some geographic areas, we’re looking to fill cultural gaps, and your ethnic background could be just what’s needed!

If you'd like to update your ethnic background and spoken languages, here's how:

  1. Sign in securely at
  2. From the My Practice menu, select “Display/Edit Practice Information.” Select the Provider Data Change Form tab and the Provider TIN/MIS (if applicable).
  3. From the General Information tab, click on the Edit button to update your Ethnic Origin.
  4. From the Specialties, Languages & Age Range tab, click on the Edit button to drag and drop the languages you speak fluently from the Languages Master List to My Languages.



Help improve members' access to care by updating your ethnic origin.


List the languages in which you can perform therapy.

Your information gets updated in our provider database in real time and is available to members who are searching for a provider with your background and expertise.
