Understanding TRICARE Pharmacy Program changes will help you make the most of your benefit.
“The TRICARE Pharmacy Program is designed to give all beneficiaries a uniform, effective, and efficient pharmacy benefit,” said U.S. Public Health Service Cmdr. Teisha Robertson, a pharmacist with the Defense Health Agency’s Pharmacy Operations Division. “Program changes help your pharmacy benefits remain affordable while giving you flexibility to choose how you fill your prescription.”
As outlined in the TRICARE Pharmacy Program Handbook, you have four options for filling covered prescriptions. These include:

If you use a non-network pharmacy, you’ll pay the full retail price of your prescription up front. If you file a claim, you may get money back. Reimbursements are subject to a deductible or out-of-network cost-shares and copayments.

As a reminder, if you use the US Family Health Plan (USFHP), you have separate pharmacy coverage. This means you must use USFHP pharmacy providers.
Registration for this webinar is limited, so don’t wait to sign up. In the meantime, check out these resources to learn more about your pharmacy benefits:
