What is the Medication Therapy

What is the Medication Therapy Management program?

One-on-one review with a pharmacist

Medication Therapy Management (MTM), while not part of a prescription drug benefit, is a Medicare designed program sponsored by Humana's RxMentor program.

If you're like many of Humana's Medicare members, you're taking multiple medicines prescribed by more than one doctor. You could also be taking medicines that, when combined, may:

  • Reduce the effectiveness of your medicines
  • Cause severe side effects
  • Cost you more money per month

As part of your Medicare Part D coverage with Humana, you can set up a one-on-one review of your medicines with a pharmacist. This review is called a comprehensive medication review (CMR) and is offered at no extra cost to you. Once enrolled in the program, you may be contacted about a targeted medication review (TMR) if a pharmacist identifies an issue that needs attention after the CMR.

How do I qualify for the program?

Humana determines eligibility quarterly by looking at your medication claims information. Once you qualify, you remain in the program for the rest of the calendar year. You will have to re-qualify for the next calendar year. In order to qualify for the MTM program, you must meet all three of the following criteria:

  • Have three of the five following conditions:
  • 2016: Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), Dyslipidemia (Abnormal Cholesterol), Osteoporosis, or Diabetes,
    2017: Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), Osteoporosis, Diabetes, Dyslipidemia (Abnormal Cholesterol), or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) AND
  • Are taking eight or more chronic maintenance (Part D) drugs in a 30-day period, AND
  • Are likely to incur annual Part D Medication costs of $3,507 for 2016 and $3,919 for 2017.

How am I notified of my MTM eligibility?

Once eligible, you will be auto-enrolled and will receive written notification within 60 days inviting you to participate in the program.

Once enrolled, you can visit any participating pharmacy for an in-person consultation or call Humana directly to be put in touch with a pharmacist who can perform your consultation over the phone.

You may also call us at 1-888-686-4486 (TTY: 711). Representatives are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. EST. Although the MTM program is a special service offered at no cost to Medicare members, it is not considered a benefit

As part of your consultation, the pharmacist may:

  • Go over the medicines you are currently taking
  • Make sure your medicines are safe for you
  • Answer any questions you may have about your medicines
  • Discuss lower-cost alternatives for your medicines
  • Discuss any concerns you have about your medicines
  • Work with you on ways to keep track of your medicines
  • Send you a summary of your consultation that includes the Personal Medication List and a Medication Action Plan

Each consultation takes about 15 minutes to complete but can range from about 10-30 minutes.
