Medicare Health Plans
MTM FOR MEDICARE PART D
Medicare Advantage and Part D plans have very specialized medication therapy management (MTM) needs. Since 2010, MTM programs have become more and more regulated. In 2014, the Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) was made a STAR measure and in 2015, CMS included the MTM program as a component of the Medicare program audit. In sharing our clients’ commitment to quality CSS provides more than a “check the box” program. Through our proprietary MTMPathTM software platform and a team of experienced management, account support, and clinicians, CSS’s standard Part D MTM program ensures regulatory (CMS) compliance, financial ROI and STAR improvement. Thanks to the flexibility of our MTMPath software and customizable solutions, our clients can extend their MTM programs to address non-MTM eligible members around focused issues through our add-on programs
Our software has been designed to provide your plan with maximum flexibility in the delivery of CMRs. Depending on your available clinical resources, you can:
- Outsource your entire MTM program to CSS
- Leverage CSS’ clinical team to support your current MTM program
- License CSS’ web-based MTMPathTM to streamline your operations
- Let CSS help you build a network of MTM clinicians.
Regardless of your desired level of involvement, we will work with you to develop a successful MTM program to meet your goals.
LICENSE OUR MTMPATH™ SOFTWARE
CSS’s MTMPathTM platform provides a turnkey solution for your Part D MTM program. MTMPathTM is a cloud solution. Implementing our cloud solution is a “light” lift for your IT team. Because all you need is a computer with an internet connection. MTMPathTM is very mobile so you can use the platform at the office, pharmacy, patient’s home, long-term care facility or physicians office, and clinic. MTMPathTM is fully configurable and conforms to your CMS submission. Learn more or request a demo.
CMS-mandated reports come standard with all of our programs. Both Beneficiary Level Report (BLR) and Universe Audit File are available through the MTMPathTM Program Dashboard and can be run on demand. CSS’s standard MTM program also provides a library of administrative, clinical and outcomes reports. All reports are made available through the Program Dashboard and can be run on demand. If that’s not enough, CSS will build custom reports to provide the data you need to manage your MTM program.
DATA VALIDATION AND CMS AUDITS
All of our clients benefit from CSS’ Data Validation and Audit support services. We fully support our clients during the validation and audit process, providing policy and procedure documentation and participating in audit calls.
Medicaid Health Plan
MEDICAID HEALTH PLAN MTM SERVICES & SOLUTIONS
As a Medicaid Health Plan, you know the challenges of improving the wellness and safety of your members while looking for financial savings. At CSS, we understand your difficulties, and we share your goals. We wrote our mission statement with you in mind.
The well-being of your members is of the utmost importance to us. Our medication therapy management services and solutions are pharmacist-informed, ensuring that your members’ medication regimen is safe and effective. If you choose, our skilled nurses and clinical staff will perform outreach to your members, giving them the education, empowerment, and support they need to make proactive choices about their health.
WE VALUE WELLNESS AND COST SAVINGS
Of course, healthy and adherent members will translate into cost savings for you. If your members are taking their medications properly, and are on an allergy and interaction-free regimen, they are less likely to seek additional, preventable medical care. Fewer unplanned trips to the hospital, urgent care, or doctor’s office will mean fewer preventable costs for you. Our MTM services and solutions seek pharmacist-approved, low-cost medication alternatives for your members. This simple process will help you eliminate unnecessary costs while helping your members achieve their best health.
WE GIVE YOU OPTIONS
CSS offers several MTM solutions designed with the pain points of a Medicaid health plan in mind. You can build your own program by pairing together the solutions that will address the areas that need the most attention, such as adherence, formulary alignment, drug-drug interactions, and chronic disease state management.
For nearly 2 decades, pharmacists and technologists at CSS have built and curated a world-class clinical recommendations engine to power MTM and other clinical programs to improve patient care.
