Top 30 Magellan Health Interview Questions with Full Content
1.
At Magellan Health we seek to hire healthcare professionals who have passion for our industry. If you could increase public awareness on any healthcare related issue, which would you choose?
Talk to the interviewer about the areas of healthcare that bring passion to you. Is there a particular issue that you would carry more public awareness to if you could?

Rachelle's Answer #1
"There are so many healthcare issues that I am passionate about, but if I could choose one, I wish that the general public were more aware of the signs and dangers of undiagnosed childhood diabetes."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"This is a very tough question as there are so many underfunded, and worthy, healthcare issues. I am going to go with one of my biggest areas of interest and research. If I could increase public awareness on any healthcare related issue, I would choose pancreatic cancer. Yes, cancer does receive a lot of awareness; however, pancreatic cancer does not. This year, over 53,000 people in the USA will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer nearly 80% will die from the disease - both men and women."
Anonymous Answer
"I have seen so many unnecessary injuries from falls throughout the years of working in Rehabilitation. I would increase public awareness of Fall Prevention. The population most affected by this are our seniors. There's a lot we can do to help people avoid injuries such as fractures, concussions, bleeding, etc. from falls. PTs, OTs, & SLPs are one of the experts in healthcare that could make a positive change and increase public awareness of Fall Prevention. Outside of Rehab, my choice would be raising public awareness of the importance of Breastfeeding."

Being dedicated to your professional development and knowledge is a huge bonus for most employers. Talk to the interviewer about the area of healthcare that you would expand your knowledge if given the opportunity.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I feel that I can always learn more about compassionate care and the techniques surrounding long-term compassionate care. I like the idea of professional development and am open to any coursework you suggest."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"There is always more to learn in a variety of areas; however, I would especially enjoy furthering my education and training in pediatric care. I find children to be most interesting to work with."
Anonymous Answer
"I would like to improve and expand my knowledge more on pediatric care. This area is close to my heart since I have a daughter that has special needs. She is grown now and doing very well. When she was little, I tried learning as much as I can about her condition, but there is so much more about pediatric care."

Rachelle's Answer #1

Rachelle's Answer #2
"I believe that I am the best candidate for you because of my double degree in both Healthcare Management, and Health Services Administration. In addition to these studies, I am also bilingual in both English and Spanish. This skill will enable me to communicate very clearly with your predominantly Spanish community."

"I have done both clinical and management positions throughout my career, but I feel I need to expand my scope a little further. Having been a Rehab Director & Rehab Coordinator in the past has given great tools and experience. Those positions are always combined with doing patient care, which I love, but I have done patient care for such a long time now, 27 years, and I would like to expand my role in a management position."
Rachelle's Answer
You have some well thought out goals, which is excellent. Try starting off with a clearer goals statement and more specifics. I have reworded slightly, below.
"I would like to expand my role into a more significant management position such as (specific job title or function). I have done both clinical and management positions throughout my career, and feel I need to expand my scope a little further by including (A), (B), and (C) responsibilities. Having been a Rehab Director & Rehab Coordinator in the past has given great tools and experience. Those positions combined management with patient care, which I love, but I have done patient care for 27 years, so it is time that I focus further on management responsibilities."
