TRICARE for Life Military Retirees – Don’t Forget! Switch to TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery Today
Did you receive a letter notifying you that one or more of your maintenance medications is on the list for the new TRICARE for Life (TFL) Pharmacy Pilot? If so you need to take action to avoid paying the full cost of your medication.
As we reported earlier this year, the TRICARE for Life (TFL) Pharmacy Pilot began in mid-March. The pilot requires TFL beneficiaries who fill prescriptions for maintenance drugs at a retail pharmacy to switch to either home delivery or a military treatment facility (MTF) pharmacy. TFL beneficiaries affected by the pilot were notified by Express Scripts in February. Please see our February article for basic information about the pilot.
To make the switch to home delivery, you can:
• Call the Express Scripts Member Choice Center at 1.877.882.3335
• Make the switch online by logging into your Express Scripts account
• Have your doctor fax your prescription to 1-877-895-1900
Please note: If one of your medications is covered by the Pilot and you haven’t switched to Home Delivery or an MTF pharmacy after two retail fills, you will be responsible for 100% of the cost if you continue to receive your prescription from a retail pharmacy.
To get more information or to sign up for email updates on the TFL Pharmacy Pilot, visit TRICARE’s website.
Until military families are relieved of the weight of war, we hope you will continue to contribute to their wellbeing.
