Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a free program we offer eligible Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan members. It’s intended to help improve medication use, lower the risk of medication interactions and help members take medications as prescribed. The program includes a one-on-one consultation with a pharmacist or other qualified provider to review your prescription and over-the-counter medications. This is called a comprehensive medication review (CMR). It’s designed just for you and usually takes around 15-20 minutes. At the end of the review, you’ll get a copy of your list of medications and any topics you discussed.
During your personalized review, the pharmacist or other qualified provider will talk with you about:
- Whether your medications are working like they should
- Whether you’re having any side effects from your medications
- Whether there are lower cost medications on your plan’s covered drug list that you could discuss with your prescriber to see if they might be right for you
- Locations where you can safely throw away unused medications
