Keeping track of your medications can be difficult and confusing.
Forgetting to take a dose, taking the wrong medication, not following the doctor’s instructions on the label all can lead to unnecessary trips to the hospital. With our help you may be able to properly manage your own medication. For many of our customers it prevents the need to be admitted to an assisted living facility or nursing home, saving them thousands of dollars per month!
Blister Packs (Bingo Cards, Bubble Packs) can be used with patients in their own homes or in long-term care facilities. Medications are packaged in a unique 30 or 31 day cycle. This easy to use packaging puts all medications designated for a particular time, e.g. 8:00AM, into the same pack . A patient will typically have four blister packs (morning, noon, evening, and bedtime).
One of the great luxuries of the program is that refills are automatic and will be delivered right to your door at the end of each month.
What is MTM?
When you have a medical condition or an illness that requires the use of prescription medication, our pharmacists will act as a bridge between you and your physician(s) to ensure that you understand your medications and how to take them to give you the best outcome.
Why is MTM important?
MTM is especially effective for patients with multiple chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma or COPD. It is also beneficial for patients who have complex medication therapies, high prescription costs, and multiple prescribers.
The MTM program determines that:
● You are properly educated about your current health condition
● You are taking your medications properly as prescribed
● The vitamins and supplements you’re taking are safe with your prescriptions
● You’re spending only what you need to and not a penny more
How do I start?
Call Manitowoc Pharmacies at 920-684-6789 and ask to speak to an MTM pharmacist.
