Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program
Our Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program is a component of Cigna Medicare Rx® (PDP) prescription drug plans and Cigna Medicare Select Plus Rx® (HMO) medical plans with prescription drug coverage. The program may assist qualified customers who meet all of the following criteria:
- Have 3 of the following chronic conditions: Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Chronic Heart Failure, Dyslipidemia, or Hypertension.
- Take 6 or more Part D covered drugs to treat their condition(s).
- Expect to spend $3017 for Part D covered drugs in 2014.
Why is MTM important?
MTM can help identify potential errors and gaps in your care by:
- Helping reduce the risk of medication errors - especially if you have chronic conditions, take several medications, or see multiple doctors
- Providing current information on proven medical practices to help you and your doctor determine the most effective treatment
- Helping you understand your condition and medications, so you can take an active role in managing your health.
Cigna Medicare Rx and Cigna Medicare Select Plus Rx have a team of pharmacists and clinicians who may communicate with you and your doctor to help you understand your condition(s) and the prescriptions you take, whether they are right for you, and if you are taking them according to your doctor's directions. We will alert your doctor about safety issues and potential gaps in care that we identify.
As a participant in the MTM Program, you are offered a comprehensive medication review with a pharmacist annually at no additional charge. Following your comprehensive medication review and conversation with your pharmacist, you will receive a personalized medication list and action plan in the mail. You and your doctor will also receive a complete medication profile in the mail on a quarterly basis.
