Changes Coming to TRICARE Rx

Starting October 1, 2015, a new law requires all TRICARE beneficiaries, except active duty servicemembers, to get select brand name maintenance drugs through either TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery (www.tricare.mil/homedelivery/) or from a military pharmacy. Beneficiaries who keep using a retail pharmacy for these drugs will have to pay the full cost. Maintenance drugs are those you take regularly for a long time. The law does not apply to drugs you take for a short time, like antibiotics. Beneficiaries living overseas, or with other prescription drug coverage, are not affected. You can check with your local military pharmacy to see if they carry your prescription. For more information about this change to TRICARE's pharmacy benefit, visit the TRICARE New Rules for Filling Prescriptions webpage at www.tricare.mil/RxNewRules.
