RxMentor®

Many Humana-insured patients take multiple medications prescribed by more than one doctor. Having multiple prescribers increases the risks of drug-to-drug interactions and potential side effects. RxMentor provides eligible members with face-to-face and telephone consultations with a pharmacist as part of Humana’s Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program. The goal of this program is to optimize therapeutic outcomes by focusing on safety, lower-cost alternatives, adherence and health literacy.

Patients:

  • Gain a better understanding of their medications
  • Benefit from one-on-one time with a pharmacist
  • Receive recommendations for treatment alternatives, if applicable

Physicians are notified by fax about the results of consultations if the patient consents to the notification and agrees to a change in medication therapy recommended by the pharmacist. The physician fax will outline the consulting pharmacist's recommendations and ask the doctor to consider making the recommended changes, if medically appropriate.

Program eligibility

Patients who meet predetermined eligibility requirements may qualify for the MTM program. Once a patient insured by Humana becomes eligible for MTM, the patient will receive notification of his/her eligibility and an offer to schedule a phone consultation with a Humana-employed pharmacist. Some patients will receive an offer for a face-to-face consultation at a local pharmacy. During either of these one-on-one consultations, the pharmacist will discuss the patient's medications and explore cost-savings opportunities.

Consultations may include the following topics:

  • Medication adherence
  • Safety (possible adverse reactions from taking multiple medications together, potential drug-to-drug interactions, etc.)
  • Drug information and health literacy
  • Gaps in medication therapies
  • Possible medication alternatives

Physicians with questions about the program may call 1-888-210-8622 (1-877-384-5282 in Puerto Rico), Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time.
