TRICARE Pharmacy Program
The TRICARE pharmacy program offers prescription drugs to eligible beneficiaries through Military Treatment Facilities, a network of pharmacies, and via mail order. The beneficiary category determines where a prescription may be filled. TRICARE has partnered with Express Scripts, Inc. to offer the pharmacy benefit.
You have several options to fill a prescription; however some options may be limited outside of the United States or based on your beneficiary category.
Least expensive with no out-of-pocket costs
Least expensive when a military pharmacy is not available. Copays for brand and non-formulary drugs
Accessible with copay, tiered based on drug category: generic, brand, and non-formulary
Most expensive; you pay full price and file a claim for reimbursement. Reimbursements are subject to deductibles, out-of-network cost-shares, and copayments.
