Who are we
Your health and your family's health is our top priority.
Headquartered in the Nashville suburb of Brentwood, Tennessee, PharmMD has been in business for over a decade. Our employee spans hundreds of employees across the nation dedicated to the mission of providing solutions that improve consumer adherence.
How We Help
On behalf of health plans, employers and providers, PharmMD's nationwide team of licensed clinicians are dedicated to support availability and proper use of medications based on your physician's orders.
Our licensed clinicians speak directly with consumers about any challenges related to medication availability or usage of prescribed medications. Also, if there are other preventive health screening tests that could help improve your health, we will discuss their importance. We often help coordinate these tests with your doctor or local clinics.
Lastly, there is no cost to you for any of these care support services.
Why is PharmMD calling me?
PharmMD works on your health plan’s behalf to make sure nothing is preventing you from accessing the best care or following your care plan, from transportation to your physician to the high cost of medications or problems with medication delivery. We call after a non-emergency issue has been identified and needs to be resolved. This may involve coordination among your providers and favorite pharmacy.
I received a letter from PharmMD, what am I supposed to do?
PharmMD provides two types of letters: a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) offer letter or Medication Review Follow-up Letter.
· If you receive a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) offer letter, then you are eligible for a free comprehensive medication review (CMR) with one of our licensed pharmacists (see why in question below). Please call 1-866-850-4159 to schedule your review.
· We suggest you take the Medication Review Follow-up Letter with you to all medical provider appointments. This letter contains the most accurate, up-to-date list of all your medications and provides space for you to write in additional medications as they are prescribed.
I already spoke with my provider. Why do I need to do a comprehensive medication review with PharmMD?
Your health plan is offering this free medication review to make sure you’re receiving the best care possible. Since the average consumer sees five or more providers and visits multiple pharmacies, it’s likely at least one medication-related issue exists (this is true in 90% of all reviews). During your confidential PharmMD review, a licensed pharmacist helps you recall all medications, including over-the-counter, so nothing is missed that could affect your health.
Someone called me from PharmMD. How can I get removed from your call list?
PharmMD only calls when a confidential review of your medical history shows at least one non-emergency issue that, once resolved, could improve your care. Once resolved, your name is automatically removed from our call list. While we attempt to address all care issues during one call, multiple calls may be needed. Please call 1-866-850-4159 to speak with one of our clinicians to discuss the specific reason for our call.
If you still do not want to receive calls from PharmMD, please call 1-866-850-4159 to speak with one of our helpful team leaders.
