What is the MTM (medication therapy management program)?

One-on-one review with a pharmacist or other trained health care provider.

A Humana member meets with a care manager

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

By participating in the program we want to help you get the best results from all of the medications you’re taking. When you talk to a trained provider they can help you make sure your medications are working for you, may help you find lower cost options, and answer any questions or concerns you may have about your medications.

How does the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program work?

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 or other trained health care provider. This review is called a comprehensive medication review (CMR) and is offered at no extra cost to you. Once enrolled in the program, you or your prescriber may be contacted about a targeted medication review (TMR) if an issue is identified with your medications that require you or your prescriber's attention. If the MTM provider finds an issue during a CMR or a TMR that requires your prescriber’s attention they may receive a telephone call or a fax from the MTM provider.

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 year1. Humana’s criteria:

What you can expect when you complete a CMR

A trained pharmacist or health care provider will review your current medication program to:

  • 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 possible 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, which is a list of all of the medications you're taking, and a Medication Action Plan, which includes things that you talked about with the MTM provider.

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