When you need help ensuring your medications are working together correctly, our specialized pharmacists are here to help.
With MTM, you can get one-on-one help from a pharmacist to be sure you’re getting the most out of your medications. It’s available at no cost with any HealthPartners UnityPoint Health Medicare plan.
MTM helps you understand and manage your medicine. You’ll meet with a clinical pharmacist who will review all the medicines you’re taking to make sure they’re working as effectively as possible.

- You expect your medicine costs to be greater than $4,696 in a single year
You’ll receive a letter in the mail confirming your enrollment and providing guidance on next steps. You can schedule an appointment or opt out of the program.
You’ll also be automatically enrolled in MTM if we determine, or your previous plan determined, that you could be at risk for misuse of certain frequently abused prescription drugs.
If you’re not automatically enrolled in MTM, you can still sign up for it. The only requirement is that you have a HealthPartners UnityPoint Health Medicare plan.

Your appointment will usually last about an hour. During this meeting, the clinical pharmacist will review your medicines and discuss them with you.
Your pharmacist will help you answer these questions:
- Why am I taking these medicines?
- Am I taking the right medicines?
- Is the medicine working as effectively as possible?
- Am I having side effects?
- Have I had the right tests to ensure the drugs aren’t causing complications?
- Are non-prescription medicines interacting with my prescriptions?
- Can I save money on prescriptions?
You’ll receive a list of your medicines and an action plan to share with your doctor. If your pharmacist has suggestions to improve your medicines, they’ll work with you and your doctor to make those changes.
You can follow up with your MTM pharmacist as much as needed. We’re always here to help. And remember, there’s no cost to you.
