Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Expansion

Intro

Under current law, MTM services are available to Medicare beneficiaries with more than one chronic condition. Clinical data suggest that expanding access to MTM services to those with a single chronic condition will improve outcomes and, potentially lower costs.

Legislation

Senator Roberts (R-KS) introduced an expansion of MTM services as part of Medicare. The Medication Therapy Management Empowerment Act of 2015 (s.776) expands access to MTM services to include Medicare beneficiaries with once chronic condition. This bill does not have a companion in the House, but does have a number of bipartisan cosponsors.
