Amerigroup Launches Medicaid MTM Programs
OutcomesMTM™ services covered for members across three states
DES MOINES, Iowa -- February 13, 2013
OutcomesMTM has been selected by Amerigroup to administer Medication Therapy
Management (MTM) services for its Medicaid members in Texas, Kansas and
Louisiana. Programs in all three states are underway.
“Whether or not a mandate exists for Amerigroup to offer face-to-face MTM
services to our members, we believe these locally provided services hold great
potential to impact our members in meaningful ways,” said Leon DeMasi, MD,
Associate National Medical Director at Amerigroup.
OutcomesMTM now has Managed Medicaid MTM programs operating in a total of six
states. Amerigroup is among more than 40 US health plans that have adopted the
OutcomesMTM unified platform, which connects such plans with over 65,000 local
chain, independent, consultant and health-system pharmacy providers across the
Select Amerigroup members are eligible for MTM services from specially-trained
Personal Pharmacists™ to help them achieve safe and effective results from
their medications while controlling costs. Through the program, participating
local pharmacists receive alerts and information concerning medication use
patterns, as well as guidance on working with patients and doctors to close
key therapy gaps.
Members are eligible for a full menu of covered services, including an annual
Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR). The CMR allows each member to meet
one-on-one with a local pharmacist to review their complete medication profile
to detect and prevent conflicts or duplications. Members are eligible for
Targeted Medication Reviews throughout the plan year as well.
Pharmacists who are interested in participating with Amerigroup or any other
OutcomesMTM program should call 877.237.0050 or visit www.outcomesmtm.com.
