How does my pharmacy benefit from providing MTM services?

  • A community pharmacy-based MTM program allows pharmacists and technicians to practice at the top of their skill level. Using their training, knowledge, and counseling skills on a daily basis can improve job satisfaction and improve staff retention.

  • Provision of MTM services results in increased revenue.

  • Health outcomes of your pharmacy's patients will improve, and their overall healthcare costs will likely decrease. Knowing that they can get valuable healthcare from their pharmacists will in turn improve your customers' levels of satisfaction.

  • Providing MTM services will help payers attain a higher star rating with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS).  This may result in more lucrative contracts with prescription insurers in future years.

  • Pharmacy-provided clinical services will encourage collaboration with local prescribers. Prescribers, in turn, will be more likely to recommend your pharmacy to their patients for immunizations, point-of-care testing, and other pharmacy-based services.
