Effective Feb. 1, 2016, TRICARE is making some changes to its over-the-counter (OTC) drug coverage. Beneficiaries must pay the usual generic copays for covered OTC drugs. OTC drug coverage will still require a prescription from their doctor except for Levonorgestrel (the emergency contraceptive used to prevent pregnancy). Feb. 1 also brings a change to which drugs are available under the OTC benefit. Visit the TRICARE Pharmacy page for more information on the TRICARE pharmacy benefit. If you have questions about whether or not one of your drugs is covered, you can always call the TRICARE pharmacy contractor, Express Scripts, at 1-877-363-1303.
