Medication Therapy Management

What is the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program?
The MTM program is a service for members who may have multiple health conditions and who may take multiple medicines. The MTM Program was designed by doctors and pharmacists to help you get the best results from all of the medications you are taking. This program helps you and your doctor make sure that your medicines are working to improve your health.
