Release Date: April 2, 2019
Expiration Date: December 31, 2021
This course provides an understanding of Medication Therapy Management (MTM), essential for pharmacists and other healthcare professionals. As a result of the passing of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act (2003), beginning in 2006, health plans that provide Medicare Part D benefits were required to establish MTM programs to offer to customers who met certain criteria for enrollment. The goal of these MTM programs is to improve the use of prescription medications, improve the outcomes of medication use, and reduce adverse drug interactions, especially in high risk individuals such as those receiving Medicare benefits.
