By using an MTM pharmacist, you can get the extra attention you need to keep your medications on the right track.

Targeted Medication Review (TMR)
The MTM pharmacist will review your drug claims quarterly to determine if follow-up interventions are needed. The pharmacist may consult with you and/or your prescribers if a medication-related problem, a necessary change in therapy, or other opportunity to optimize medication use is needed. The TMR service may take up to 15 minutes.
The MTM pharmacist will speak with you and your doctor either face-to-face or via phone to address any problems found with your medications. This service may take up to 15 minutes.
When starting a new medication, your MTM pharmacist will:
- Talk to you about its purpose and correct use.
- Follow up with you to make sure the drug is working correctly and that you are not having any problems.
