Dramatic Tricare Drug Cost Hike Advances in Congress
Tricare pharmacy co-pays for most drugs will go up in 2018 due to a measure expected to be approved by lawmakers.

Over the next 12 years, the measure would steadily increase co-pays for most drugs through retail pharmacies, while adding new fees to those received by mail.
