Why is MTMP important?
MTMP helps find potential drug problems and gaps in your care. The program:
• Helps reduce the risk of medication errors, especially if you have chronic conditions, take several medications or see multiple doctors and other health care providers;
• Provides current information on proven medical practices to help you and your doctor determine the most effective treatment;
• Helps you understand your condition and medications, so you can take an active role in managing your health.
What are the benefits of MTMP for me?
MTMP is your chance to speak with an experienced pharmacist on your time, when you have the privacy to ask questions. Taking part in MTMP may help improve your overall health and reduce your risk for serious medication reactions, hospitalization and emergency room visits.
The MTMP pharmacists can help you:
• Understand your condition and the prescriptions you take
• Ensure you are taking your prescriptions according to your doctor's directions
• Check for drug interactions between your medications, including over-the counter drugs and supplements
• Identify possible cost savings
• Receive additional educational material in the mail
We will also contact your doctor about any potential drug interactions or therapeutic duplications that are found.
What will I receive as part of MTMP?
Members who take part will receive:
• A full medication review with a specially trained pharmacist by phone, which may take 10-15 minutes to complete
• A chance to meet one on one, in-person with an MVP pharmacist
• A written summary of your medication review that includes an action plan for you to discuss with your doctor
• A Personal Medication List of all your drugs and why you take them. You can also print and complete the Personal Medication List yourself. Keep this list with you for doctor visits or emergencies.
• A medication review at least every 3 months. You or your doctor may receive a follow-up letter or a phone call about any new recommendations from the pharmacist.
