Let HPSM Help You Get the Most from Your Medications

Do you ever feel like you are:

  • Taking medicines you may no longer need?
  • Unhappy with some of the side effects of your medicines?
  • Spending too much money on medicines?

CareAdvantage has a program that may be able to help. Members with certain medical conditions and who take eight or more medicines qualify for our no-cost Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program. If you qualify, our  partner MedWatchers will reach out to you by phone and/or mail. The MTM Program will not change the medicines covered by Medicare.

The MTM Program can:

  • Make sure your medicines are working.
  • Help you get the best results from your medicines.
  • Check if there are other medicines that can help you.

The MTM Program gives you:

  • A Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) at least once a year. The CMR is a confidential 30-minute review of your prescription and over-the-counter medicines. It is done by a MedWatchers pharmacist or other health professional over the phone.
  • A Targeted Medication Review (TMR) at least once every three months. The TMR is a review of all your medicine records by MedWatchers. If they find any problems, they let you and/or your healthcare provider know by phone or mail.

Joining this program will not affect your CareAdvantage benefits. If you already heard from MedWatchers and you want to opt out of the MTM Program, call 1-866-374-6238 (TTY/TDD 7-1-1).
