Board approves Magellan contract

Lehigh County Board of Commissioners approved an amended agreement of its contract with Magellan Behavioral Health June 14. Sponsored by Commissioner David Jones, the resolution served as a new milestone in the board’s relationship with Magellan.

The company, which provides behavioral health care to qualifying residents, had been controversial in years prior.

Jones, who had previously voted against extending the county’s contract with Magellan several years ago, praised the company’s improvements in its services.
