Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program

If you have multiple conditions and take multiple chronic medications, you may be contacted about Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services. Through our MTM program, we have identified specially trained pharmacists, local or from MTMCare, who are contracted and trained to give MTM services. If you struggle to remember to take your medications at the right times, or you wonder if they’re working as intended, we can help. Talking with an experienced pharmacist can help keep your medications on track.

Through our Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program, pharmacists call members with multiple, ongoing prescriptions and conditions to offer assistance at no cost.

Working together with you and your doctor, your MTM pharmacist will help make sure you’re getting the best results from your medications, while keeping your out-of-pocket costs down.
