Medication Therapy Management
Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program
The Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program is a free service for ConnectiCare Medicare plan members with a Part D prescription drug coverage who have certain health conditions and who take certain prescription medications covered by Medicare Part D. The MTM Program helps you and your doctor make sure that your medications are working to improve your health. It can also help prevent any issues with your medications.
If you qualify for the MTM Program, a pharmacist can review your prescription and over-the-counter medications and medical conditions. During the review, the pharmacist will talk to you about:
- Better understanding your medications, how to take them, and any side effects or reactions
- Possible ways to save money on your medications
- Any questions or concerns you have
To participate in the MTM Program, you must be eligible. If you qualify, we will automatically enroll you at no additional cost. We will mail you a letter and follow up with a phone call inviting you to participate and providing information about the program. Participation is voluntary. You can opt out of the program at any time, but we hope you can take advantage of this opportunity to get the most from your medications.
There is no added cost for this program. While not considered a Medicare benefit, the MTM program is a special service part of your Medicare plan. The goal is to help you get the most from your medications.
To find out more about the MTM Program, you can call ConnectiCare's Medicare Pharmacy Services toll-free at 1-888-447-0321 (TTY: 711), Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

- Be invited to complete a full medication review with an ConnectiCare clinical pharmacist over the phone. During this review, the pharmacist will go over your medications including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, herbal therapies, and dietary supplements to make sure they are safe and working for you. The review may take up to 30 minutes.
- Receive a personal medication list and medication action plan in the mail. Your personal medication list will help you keep track of your medications and how to use them the right way. Your medication action plan will have steps to help you get results from your medications. Be sure to share this information with your doctor.
- Your medications can be reviewed every four months via a targeted medication review. After each review, we may send your doctor a letter explaining any issues or ways to improve. Your prescriptions will not change unless you and your doctor decide to change them.
- Get helpful information on how to safely dispose of prescription drugs that are controlled substances, including opioids, at home and through takeback programs.
You and your health care providers can also keep track of the medications you are taking with a blank personal medication list.
We want to be sure you understand your medications and how to take them. We will answer any questions or concerns you may have.
