Denise Martinez Jonathan, Pharm D., R.Ph. | Director of Pharmacy Services

After receiving my Doctorate of Pharmacy degree from the University of Houston College of Pharmacy in 2005, I completed my managed care pharmacy practice residency at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. I enjoyed the experience at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, so in 2006 I accepted a position as Pharmacy Administrator of Clinical Services for Kelsey-Seybold Clinic and later, in 2008, became the Director of Pharmacy Services for KelseyCare Advantage.

During my years with the Kelsey-Seybold family, I have been able to assist in the development of various pharmacy initiatives. For example, the Medication Therapy Management Program was designed specifically for monitoring various disease states, such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and congestive heart failure. In the pharmacy profession it is vital that I remain knowledgeable about the latest drug therapies for various medical conditions, therefore I enjoy attending national pharmacy conferences, as well as staying connected to pharmacy schools throughout the state.

After only a few years in the position of Director of Pharmacy Services for KelseyCare Advantage, I am absolutely dedicated to our mission. KelseyCare Advantage realizes that members have a choice when it comes to choosing a Medicare Advantage plan and that is why the pharmacy services team strives to do all it can to make KelseyCare Advantage our members' top choice.

I find joy in knowing that I am able to help members get the most from their pharmaceutical coverage and our pharmacy services team ensures that members' drug-related questions are answered accurately and objectively.

Whether it’s providing advice for getting through the donut hole or helping a member get their prescriptions for the lowest possible cost, the pharmacy services team thoroughly enjoys their interactions with KelseyCare Advantage members. I always tell others that the best part about working at KelseyCare Advantage is the people I work with and the members we serve. It is truly a joy to be associated with a team of individuals who completely dedicate themselves to the health and well being of KelseyCare Advantage members.
