Medication Therapy Management Program

If you have complex health needs, you may be eligible to participate in our Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program, designed to help you and your doctor make sure that your medications are working. Our MTM program is provided at no additional cost to you.

Our MTM program includes a free discussion and review of all of your medications by a pharmacist or other health professional to help you use them safely. You will get a summary of this discussion to help you get the most benefit from your medications. You can have this summary available when you talk with your doctors or other health care providers.

Personal Medication List

Even if you don’t participate in the MTM program, it is still a good idea to create a Personal Medication List to help you and your caregivers keep track of what medications you need to take. Having a Personal Medication List can reduce your medication risks and prevent medical errors.


Here are a few helpful tips to help you get started:
  • Download and print a Personal Medication List and list all your prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, herbals, vitamins and minerals.
  • Record any drug allergies or side effects you have.
  • Keep this list up-to-date.
  • Use blank rows to add new medications and record dates you started using them. Cross out medications you no longer use and record the date and why you stopped using them.
  • Ask your doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers to update this list at every visit.
  • Keep the list in your wallet or purse.
  • If you go to the hospital or emergency room, take this list with you.
  • Share this list with your family or caregivers.
