Join the “Make the Most of Your TRICARE Pharmacy Benefit” webinar on April 25, from 1 to 2 p.m. This webinar will discuss how to fill prescriptions and manage prescriptions, as well as pharmacy covered services, costs and more. A pharmacy expert will provide detailed information about the TRICARE Pharmacy Program and answer your questions.

The TRICARE Pharmacy Program provides prescription drug coverage for all TRICARE beneficiaries. Individuals have the same pharmacy coverage with any TRICARE health plan. For those who use the US Family Health Plan, they have a separate pharmacy coverage. Active duty service members don’t pay for their covered prescription drugs.

The pharmacy contractor is Express Scripts, Inc. and they manage TRICARE prescriptions. With the TRICARE Pharmacy Program, individuals have four options for filling your prescriptions:

TRICARE covers most prescription drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Individuals can search the TRICARE Formulary for covered generic and brand-name drugs. They can also search the TRICARE Formulary to:

  • See where to fill a prescription
  • See how much a drug costs (costs will vary depending on drug category)
  • See if a prescription needs prior authorization from a provider
  • Look up the medical necessity criteria

Learn more about how the pharmacy benefit works by joining the April 25 webinar. A question and answer period led by the presenter will follow the presentation.
