Arlington-based Armed Forces Services Corp. rebrands to Magellan Federal
Military-focused health care company has more than 3,000 employees
Arlington-based Armed Forces Services Corp. has rebranded to Magellan Federal. A subsidiary of Phoenix-based managed health care company Magellan Health Inc., Magellan Federal is a military-focused provider of health care, human services and pharmacy solutions.
Magellan Healthcare, the health care business unit of Magellan Health Inc., acquired AFSC as a wholly-owned subsidiary in 2016. Since the purchase, the combined federal government contract teams under Magellan Healthcare have operated under a business unit identified as Magellan Federal.
Magellan Federal has more than 3,000 employees delivering services across 250 military bases, installations and agencies globally.
Magellan Healthcare provides services in the areas of behavioral health, medical specialty treatment and fully integrated managed care. It serves commercial health plans, employers, state and local governments, as well as the federal government, including the Department of Defense.
“As we transition to Magellan Federal and leave behind the AFSC brand, we will continue to put individuals and their families at the center of our services,” says Oscar Montes, CEO of Magellan Federal.
Under the new name, Magellan Federal will offer additional services and benefits to its employees and clients, in addition to military and federal families that they serve.
“In solidifying our identity as Magellan Federal, we remain a strong partner to our military and federal customers, bringing next-generation, innovative solutions to the table,” added Montes.
