About Us

Magellan Federal/AFSC is a market leader providing high-impact, innovative, and cost-effective solutions to the nation's most demanding human needs. With headquarters in Arlington, VA, we have over 1,400 workers in 52 states and territories and 14 countries. We are known for our deep commitment, extra effort, and constant innovation every day working to provide management consulting and program delivery to many of the most vital government programs serving the military and civilian communities.

Our teams span from focused strategic planning engagements to very large programs focused on operational services such as adjudication support and broader case management functions. We have deep experience in the full spectrum of quality-of-life programs serving the military lifecycle—including healthcare, resiliency, suicide, family strength, education, employment, and financial/legal support. Our expertise has been recognized by several White House Administrations, Congress, and throughout the DoD and VA. We also support many of the nation’s largest military nonprofit organizations—contributing thousands of hours of pro bono consulting back into the nonprofit sector from which we sprang.


AFSC Timeline

Our legacy goes back to 1879 with the formation of a nonprofit organization, Army Mutual Aid Association (AMAA), established to care for surviving spouses from The Battle of Little Big Horn. Before there was a Veterans Administration, AMAA was working to make sure veterans and their families were cared for.

In the year 2000, AFSC was spun off as a separate organization owned by disabled veterans, with a mission to expand our services and bring our special skills and commitment to serve the government’s most critical human needs.

In 2016, Magellan Health, one of the nation’s largest healthcare companies, purchased AFSC to create Magellan Federal, a team fully dedicated to serving the federal market providing healthcare and human services that ensure maximum “whole-life” health and productivity for the military, federal employees, and federal program recipients.

Today, we operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Magellan dedicated to improving the lives of Service members, veterans, families, civilian federal workers, and federal program recipients.
