Numerous reports have been received from TRICARE beneficiaries regarding bogus "call center" representatives who are encouraging beneficiaries to provide personal identifying information and health information so that TRICARE can allegedly provide prescribed cream medications to the beneficiary. Be wary of unsolicited attempts by any entity asking for personal or health information, either by phone or in person. TRICARE beneficiaries receiving calls asking for personal information should immediately submit a fraud report to the pharmacy benefit contractor, ESI, via email to TRICAREfraudtip@express-scripts.com or call toll free 866-759-6139. ESI staff can also flag profiles and reject attempts to bill for these medications. People receiving unsolicited medication in the mail should refuse delivery.
