Medication Therapy Management Pilot
Did you get a letter asking you to participate in the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Pilot?
If you did, we encourage you to participate.
What is Medication Therapy Management?
- It’s a meeting with a pharmacist to review the prescription and non-prescription drugs you take.
- It gives you more opportunities to discuss your drugs with a pharmacist. They can answer any questions you have about what to expect from the drug, any side effects, and how your drugs interact with each other.
- MTM’s goal is to help you get the most from your drug therapy.
What is the Medication Therapy Management Pilot?
It’s a program with no cost to you. It can help you:
- Get better health results from your drugs.
- Improve communication between you, your doctor, and your pharmacist.
- Understand potential drug side-effects or interactions.
- Have maximum input into your medication treatment plan.
After your visit, your MTM team may contact your doctor with any concerns. You will receive a copy of your current medication list and a copy of your personal medication action plan.
How do I get started?
Only TRICARE beneficiaries with certain health profiles are eligible to participate in the MTM pilot.
