Prescription refills must be called in using the Pharmacy's automated telephone refill system at 781-225-6789, Press 2. Patients should have the following information on hand when calling in a refill: sponsor's last four numbers of the social security number and prescription number.
Prescriptions other than controlled medications are good for one year from the date they were originally filled. If your prescription has no refills, is over one year old or is too early to fill the refill line will tell you and not accept the refill.
No matter what day a refill is called in, it will be ready for pick-up in two duty days. Here are two examples: If a refill is called in by 11:59 p.m. Monday, it will ready Wednesday. If a refill is called in by 11:59 p.m. Friday, it will be ready Tuesday.
Because of limited space the pharmacy can only hold prescriptions for five duty days.
TRICARE offers several convenient ways for you to have prescriptions filled depending on your specific needs.
First, you may have prescriptions filled (up to a 90-day supply for most medications) at a MTF pharmacy free of charge. Please be aware that not all medications are available at MTF pharmacies. Each facility is required to make available the medications listed in the basic core formulary. The MTF, through their local Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee, may add additional medications to their local formulary based on the scope of care at that MTF.
Second, the TRICARE Home Delivery is available for prescriptions you take on a regular basis. You can receive up to a 90-day supply, for most medications, of your prescription through the mail by using the Home Delivery program. Visit www.express-scripts.com for more details.
