ASHP Statement Communicates Value Pharmacists Bring to MTM Services

Pharmacist-provided medication therapy management services can help the Medicare program achieve improved patient outcomes and reduced costs, ASHP told a U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee this week.

In the statement, ASHP outlined pharmacists’ roles on the interprofessional care team, including care transitions, disease management, and preventative health screenings. The statement also notes how proposed provider status legislation, the Pharmacy and Medically Underserved Areas Enhancement Act (H.R. 592), can help alleviate increased demands on the healthcare system caused by growing enrollment in Medicare.
