The charge of Act 212 of the 2013 Regular Legislative Session was to provide transparency relative to Medicaid managed care programs. Within the Office of Behavioral Health (OBH), this involves the Louisiana Behavioral Health Partnership (LBHP) and its included Coordinated System of Care (CSoC). To manage the LBHP, inclusive of CSoC, Magellan Health Services of Louisiana, Inc. (Magellan) was selected to administer the program as the statewide management organization (SMO). This report outlines responses to the requests made by the legislature in Act 212 relative to Magellan's management of care within the LBHP and CSoC.
