What is Medication Therapy Management (MTM)?
MTM is a program provided by a pharmacist to help you understand and use your medications effectively. The pharmacist can help you get the most out of your medications by identifying, preventing and resolving medication related problems. We meet with you one-on-one in our private consultation room.
Who can use this service?
Anyone can use MTM. The service is especially beneficial for those managing multiple medications and medical conditions. The pharmacist will go over all of your medications, including OTC medications and herbal supplements. We will work collaboratively with your physician if needed to help you be successful in managing your medical conditions. Many times this service is fully covered by your insurance company.
Why is this important?
Medication related problems and medication mismanagement are a growing public health issue. Experts estimate that 1.5 million preventable adverse events occur each year that result in $177 billion in injury and death.
