Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program | Healthfirst

Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program

The Healthfirst Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program is an in-depth, one-on-one review of all your medications (prescription, over-the-counter, herbal, and nutritional).

The MTM program is not a benefit, but rather an extra service offered at no additional cost to eligible participants.
The goal is to help you get the most from your medications.

You’ll be contacted by mail and phone if you’re eligible to participate in this program.

MTM Services Include:

  • Phone consultation with a licensed pharmacist to complete a Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR). This will take about 30 to 60 minutes, and the pharmacist will answer any questions you have. (A CMR is usually offered once each year, if you qualify.)
  • Medication Action Plan (MAP).
  • Medication recommendations may be sent to your provider from the MTM pharmacist, also known as Targeted Medication Review (TMR).
