What is Medication Therapy Management (MTM)?
Molina Healthcare’s Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program is a service provided at no-cost. MTM is not considered a benefit and is offered to members that meet certain criteria. A pharmacist or other trained healthcare provider will review your prescription, over-the-counter (OTC) and supplement/herbal medications with you over the phone. The goal of MTM is to help you understand your medicines, resolve side effects and answer any questions you may have about your medication.
How do I Qualify for MTM?
Molina Healthcare determines MTM eligibility on a monthly basis using medical and pharmacy claims information.
You qualify for MTM if you meet each of the three criteria below:
1.Have three or more of the following conditions:
- Chronic Heart Failure (CHF)
- Bipolar Disorder
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
2.Take at least six drugs that are covered under your Medicare Part D plan
3.Are likely to incur annual costs for covered Part D drugs equal to or greater than $3,967 in 2018
Once you meet the criteria, you will be automatically enrolled in the MTM program and mailed a letter with information about the program and how to contact us. We may also call you to schedule an appointment to speak with a pharmacist.
What is discussed during my MTM consultation?
In the comfort of your own home, a pharmacist or other trained healthcare provider will help you:
- Review all of your prescription, over-the-counter (OTC) and supplement/ herbal medicines
- Discuss any side effects or reaction you may have when taking certain medicines
- Answer any question you have about your medicine
- Suggest potential improvements to your medication regimen
- Make a list of your medicines with when and how you should take them
- Create goals for taking your medicines
- Improve your use of medicines
MTM is performed over the phone and will last approximately 30 minutes. After the brief appointment, you will be mailed a Personal Medication List that you can share with your healthcare providers. You will also be mailed a Medication Action Plan that summarizes what was discussed during your MTM encounter. If the MTM provider has any concerns about your medications, such as drug interactions, your prescribing doctors will be made aware. We encourage you to participate in this Comprehensive Medication Review at least once a year, and if possible, before your annual wellness visit with your doctor.
