Medication Therapy Management
What is the Medication Therapy Medication (MTM) Program?
We understand that keeping track of multiple medications and dosing schedules can be difficult. That’s why as a member of Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan Senior Care Options, you can have a specially trained clinical staff such as a pharmacist or nurse review all your medications with you. These clinicians can help answer any of your questions and work with your doctor to make sure your medications are appropriate, safe, and effective. The MTM Program is not considered a benefit and is a free service for eligible members.
Who is Eligible?
Members are automatically enrolled quarterly into the MTM program is they meet ALL of the following criteria:
- You have at least three (3) of the following chronic conditions:
You are taking at least eight (8) or more different covered Medicare Part D medications
You have an accumulated drug cost (not what you pay) of $979.75 in the previous quarter for covered Medicare Part D medications
- Chronic Heart Failure (CHF)
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Atrial Fibrillation
Eligible members will receive a Welcome Letter from our MTM Partner, EnvisionRxOptions. Within a few weeks of receiving the letter, you will receive a call from EnvisionRxOptions to set up an appointment to speak to a clinical staff member and complete the Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR).
What is a Comprehensive Medication Review?
The Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) is done with you over the phone and will give you the opportunity to review all of your current medications with a pharmacist or other qualified clinician. This is a one-on-one, conversation by phone that takes about 30 minutes. After completing the CMR, you will be mailed a personal medication list (PML) and a medication action plan (MAP). The PML will include your current prescription medications, over-the-counter medications and dietary and herbal supplements. The MAP will summarize what you and the pharmacist or other qualified clinician discussed during the CMR and discussion topics for you and your doctor.
We will also conduct ongoing Targeted Medication Reviews (TMRs) and your doctor may be contacted by mail if we identify any issues with your medications.
To help you track your medications, you can also download a blank Personal Medication List for your personal use.
Members may also receive helpful information in the mail. This can include additional information about their medications and suggestions from our pharmacists or other qualified clinicians about how to make the most of your medications and benefits. This information can be helpful when meeting with your doctor or pharmacist.
