Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program

The Healthfirst Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program is an in-depth, one-on-one review of all your medications (prescription, over-the-counter, herbal, and nutritional).

The MTM program is not a benefit, but rather an extra service offered at no additional cost to eligible participants.
The goal is to help you understand your medications and use them safely.

You’ll be contacted by mail and phone if you’re eligible to participate in this program.
