Medication Management Definition

Medication management is the level of outpatient treatment where the sole service rendered by a qualified physician, or others whose scope of practice includes prescribing medication, is the initial evaluation of the patient's need for psychotropic medications, the provision of a prescription, and, as-needed, ongoing medical monitoring/evaluation related to the patient’s use of the psychotropic medication. Interactive psychotherapy is not being rendered at this time by the physician/prescriber, but may be provided by another clinician

Service Expectations

  • Medical evaluation
  • Medication monitoring routinely and as needed
  • Client education pertaining to the medication to support the individual in making an informed decision for its use.
  • The service provider must make a good faith attempt to coordinate care with the individual’s primary medical provider
