Medication Therapy Management
At CareSource, we understand the impact that proper medication use can have on your health. That’s why we have a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program for our members. This program is geared toward helping you learn about your medications, prevent or address medication-related problems, decrease costs and stick to your treatment plan.
This program is delivered to you by health care professionals, including many local pharmacists. In most cases, a pharmacist will reach out to you and ask if you are interested in learning more about your medications. They are asking because they want to help you. The pharmacist may ask to schedule time with you to go over all of your medications, which includes any pills, creams, eye drops, herbals or over the counter items. Through the program, your local pharmacist will get alerts and information about your medications and decide if you may need extra attention. They offer ways to help you with your medications and how to take them the right way. They will also work with your doctor and others to address your needs and improve how you use your medications.
This service, and the pharmacist’s help and information, are part of being a CareSource member and are available at no cost to you.
