New Part D Data File Available: Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
CMS is pleased to announce the availability of a new Part D data file, the Medication Therapy Management (MTM). This file fulfills requests made by researchers for data to enable study of the effects of MTM under Part D. The MTM file will be available for 2013 forward. Currently 2013 and 2014 MTM files are available. Additional years will be released annually in the fourth calendar year quarter. The file contains beneficiary-level records that can be linked to other Research Identifiable File (RIF) data via the CCW beneficiary identifier, the Bene_ID. The MTM file can be requested through the usual RIF process, found on the Research Data Assistance Center (ResDAC) website.
The file will be released on February 1, 2017. Please contact ResDAC with any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-973-7322.
