Walgreens pharmacies joined the TRICARE retail pharmacy network on Dec. 1, 2016. CVS pharmacies, including those in Target stores, left the network on the same day. Most pharmacy locations in the network are not changing, including other major chains like Rite Aid and Walmart, grocery stores, and thousands of community pharmacies around the country. Starting on Dec. 1, you can transfer your prescription to Walgreens, or any other pharmacy in the TRICARE retail pharmacy network. TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery and military pharmacies may also be lower-cost choices for some beneficiaries. The Express Scripts, Inc. (ESI) website has more information on the revised network, and can help you find a new retail pharmacy location near you, or you can call ESI at 855-778-1417.
