Medication therapy management (MTM)

Get the most out of your medicine with MTM

When you need help ensuring your medications are working together correctly, our specialized pharmacists are here to help. With medication therapy management, you can get one-on-one help from a pharmacist to be sure you’re understanding your medications and taking them properly. It’s available at no cost with any HealthPartners UnityPoint Health Medicare plan.

Medication therapy management works by helping 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.
