The program provides assistance for people who are 65 years of age or older or who have a disability, and who have resources below $5,000 for an individual and $6,000 for a couple and whose income at or below 88 percent of the federal poverty level.

The Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency), through an agreement with the University of Florida, provides Medication Drug Therapy Management Program services to Medicaid recipients assigned to the MEDS-AD Waiver program. The goals of the program are to improve the quality of care and prescribing practices based on best-practice guidelines, improve patient adherence to medication plans, reduce clinical risk, and lower prescribed drug costs and the rate of inappropriate spending for certain Medicaid prescription drugs.
The Agency has contracted with the Florida State University to conduct an independent evaluation of the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program authorized under Florida’s section 1115 MEDS-AD Research and Demonstration Waiver approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
