    • We may also call members regarding a date to schedule their comprehensive medication review.
    • The comprehensive medication review will take place in person, by telephone, or by other means. The review is a discussion between the member or authorized representative and the qualified MTM provider. The review usually takes 30 to 60 minutes.
    • After the comprehensive medication review, participants will receive a written summary of the findings. This includes a cover letter, medication action plan and personal medication list. Download a blank copy of the Personalized Medication List (pdf).
    • Targeted medication reviews are performed with the participant’s care team to notify them of actual or potential medication-related problems.
