Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT)
As a fully integrated health plan, Magellan Complete Care of Virginia (MCC of VA) promotes wellness for its members and encourages providers’ involvement in managing members’ physical and mental health needs. Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) is an integral part of our wellness program. These visits include comprehensive health and developmental history (including assessment of past medical history, developmental history and behavioral health status) for eligible children from birth to 20 years old.
As part of our commitment to ensuring members’ wellness, MCC of VA will reach out to the parents of newly enrolled child and adolescent members, as well as members with gaps in care, to assist with setting up an appointment with the child’s primary care physician for an EPSDT visit, if they have not already done so.
MCC of VA is also reaching out to you, the primary care physician, to ask you to please contact your members to get their EPSDT visits scheduled and completed. Please review MCC of VA’s EPSDT program for information on MCC of VA’s EPSDT program and your provider responsibilities.
As part of their benefits, MCC of VA members receive transportation to and from visits through Veyo which can aid in members attending the EPSDT visit. Our Care Coordination team is also a resource for your practice and can be reached by calling 1-800-424-4524 for CCC Plus or 1-800-424-4518 for Medallion 4.0, if members need further assistance in arranging the EPSDT visit.
Additional information on EPSDT can be found in Magellan Complete Care of VA’s provider handbook. You can also find more information at the resources below:

Virginia reportable disease list
When a new CCC Plus member (or Medallion 4.0 member who we determine has healthcare needs that require care coordination) enrolls with MCC of VA, we will conduct an initial Health Risk Assessment to determine the member’s needs and complete an initial individualized care plan (ICP), which includes but is not limited to, the member’s expressed goals, services the member needs and will receive (regardless of payer source), and the member’s preferences for their care and provider selection.
Upon enrollment, each MCC of VA member receives a member ID card reflecting his/her primary care provider (PCP) name and effective date. The MCC of VA Member Services number is located on the back of the ID card.
For information about member benefits or eligibility please refer to our For Members section.
Individualized care plans for members
MCC of VA’s model of care is person-centered, community-focused, and evidence-driven. We focus on activities designed to improve quality of life and health outcomes by targeting and influencing behavioral, social, economic, and clinical determinants of those outcomes at both the individual and group level.
This individualized, person-centered approach engages individuals with disabilities and chronic conditions to effectively interact with the provider delivery system to ensure choice, control, and access to a full array of quality services. This approach ensures optimal outcomes such as independence, health and wellness, and quality of life.
Our Care Coordinators work to develop an ICP with CCC Plus members and any Medallion 4.0 members whose needs require care coordination.
HEDIS Tip Sheets
Telehealth tip sheet
Telehealth has been around for many years. It has shown to be a cost-effective, evidence-based alternative option for delivering healthcare for behavioral health diagnoses and treatments. It’s becoming widely reimbursed by payers such as health plans, states, CMS and most recently, NCQA for HEDIS.
Please use this tip sheet as a reference tool to see what measures can be provided via telehealth and how to appropriately code telehealth services provided to MCC of VA members.
