Save Cash with Mail-Order Meds

Mail order is your least expensive option for filling prescriptions when not using a military treatment facility pharmacy. TRICARE pharmacy home delivery allows you to receive up to a 90-day supply of your maintenance medications for the same price as a 30-day supply filled at your local retail network pharmacy.

You will need a prescription and a valid uniformed services identification card or Common Access Card to fill prescriptions through mail order. You can order by mail, phone, fax or online, and prescriptions are delivered with free standard shipping. The mail order program also provides convenient e-mail notifications about order status and refill reminders and provides assistance with renewing expired prescriptions.

Mail Order Costs - Beneficiaries are responsible for the following copayments for up to a 90-day supply of medications: $3 (generic), $9 (brand name) and $22 (non-formulary).

Converting Maintenance Prescriptions - If you would like to convert a current maintenance prescription to mail order, call the Member Choice Center at 1-877-363-1433, or use the online tool on the TRICARE Pharmacy Program website by clicking “get started with Home Delivery.”
