With resources to match your professional development, a culture that welcomes your ideas, and unparalleled flexibility to fit work around your life, we believe a role at Magellan is the best call you can make.

Listen, support, innovate

We’re a rapidly growing Fortune 500 company because of our people. We’re a collective of motivated and driven professionals, supporting each other to develop innovative solutions for the fastest growing, most complex areas of healthcare.

 Every day, 10,000 people at Magellan wake up focused on leading humanity to healthy, vibrant lives. We respect each other, and we respect and value the time we spend away from the workplace that enriches and informs the working day.

 Our greatest strength lies in our unique ability to offer meaningful work with people who care. We're looking for experts in making vital and accurate assessments to determine members’ eligibility for our services and get them started on the road to recovery.

What you’ll do:

In this varied and fulfilling role, as an Assessment Nurse you’ll be visiting members in their homes across New York City. You’ll professionally assess the members’ needs, and act as a facilitator to ensure that those needs are fully met. Your work will make a vital and positive difference, developing the members’ Individual Care Plans (ICP)/Person Centered Service Plan (PCSP), and modifying the plans when necessary to reflect the member’s changing needs.

With a minimum of 2 years clinical experience with a focus on managed care, and with UAS experience, you’ll be experienced in Home Care, Long-Term Care, and Managed Long Term Care, including appropriate support services in the community.

With solid assessment skills, you’ll have the ability to understand and apply coverage guidelines and benefit limitations and be familiar with clinical needs and disease processes for chronic physical and behavioral illnesses, (depression, challenging behaviors, Alzheimer`s disease and other disease-related dementias). You’ll handle all the relevant paperwork and decide on eligibility for community-based long-term care. Knowledge of Medicare and Medicaid will be beneficial.

You’ll need to be comfortable visiting members in their homes, possess a valid driving license, (optional for those working in Manhattan), and confidence in other languages would be an advantage.  You’ll need to be a great organizer, a collaborative team-player and have good IT and data skills.

What we’ll do:

We’ll support you to do your very best work, ensuring your skills are enhanced with regular training and continuing education sessions focused on the proper completion of UAS documentation, enrolment paperwork, and tasking tool. We’ll provide an environment where you’ll thrive, with a great work life balance and rewards package, and with colleagues that roll up their sleeves to get the job done, just like you.

“My role helps people reach their full potential. As we go through life we have these bumps in the road and that’s usually where I meet the members. I help them work through those detours by providing access to the right care and helping them get over to the next success in their life.”
