Several changes to the TRICARE pharmacy benefit took effect on Feb. 1. Copays for drugs filled at retail pharmacies and TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery increased slightly. Also, TRICARE Over-the-Counter (OTC) drug coverage became a full and permanent part of the TRICARE benefit, requiring that beneficiaries pay the usual generic copays. If you get your drugs from a military pharmacy, or use Home Delivery to get a generic drug, you will still pay $0. To view all the new copays, visit the TRICARE Prescription Costs webpage. Different OTC drugs will be available as well. For more information about the OTC benefit, visit the TRICARE Over-the-Counter Drugs webpage.
