Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Programs offer free services to eligible members of Medicare drug plans. These services help make sure that medications are working to improve their members’ health. Members can talk with a pharmacist or other health professional and find out how to get the most benefit from their medications. Members can ask questions about costs, drug reactions, or other problems. Each member gets their own action plan and medication list after the discussion. These can be shared with their doctors or other health care providers. Members who take different medications for more than one health condition may contact their drug plan to see if they’re eligible.
