What Is Drug Quantity Management?

Drug Quantity Management (DQM) is a program in your pharmacy benefit that is designed to make the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable. It provides you with medications you need for your good health while making sure you receive them in the quantity considered safe.

Certain medications are included in this program. For these medications, you can receive an amount to last you a certain number of days: for instance, the program could provide a maximum of 30 pills for a medication you take once a day. This gives you the right amount to take the daily dose considered safe and effective, according to guidelines from the FDA.
