Incorporating MTMS in Medicare Part D

Published Online: Saturday, October 1, 2005   [ Request Print ]

Officials of Community Care Rx (CCRx) have announced that it will be implementing community pharmacist Medication Therapy Management Services (MTMS) for qualified participants in its 2006 Part D Medicare Prescription Drug Plan. As part of the program, pharmacists not only will deliver quality health care, but also will serve in an important role: as financial advisers to their patients regarding drug benefits.

"Through MTMS, pharmacists can advise patients on strategies to maintain a high quality of pharmaceutical health care, while potentially reducing beneficiaries' out-of-pocket expenses. This expanded role, in which community pharmacists offer clinical counseling as well as financial strategies regarding cost-effective and high-quality pharmaceutical care, will be a great value- added service to Medicare beneficiaries, who often have multiple chronic medical conditions and are taking several medications," said Bruce Roberts, RPh, chairman of the board of CCRx.
