Make the Most of Your TRICARE® Pharmacy Benefit

As a TRICARE beneficiary, it’s important to understand your pharmacy benefit and your options to get the medications you need safely and securely.

Get the most out of your benefit

Here are some ways you can maximize your pharmacy benefit:

  • TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery is a safe and convenient way to get prescription medications that you use regularly. Home Delivery can lower your prescription costs and provide you with up to a 90-day supply of your medication for a lower copayment than just a 30-day supply at retail. Plus, enjoy the convenience of having your medication delivered right to you – wherever you are. Be sure to tell your doctor that you use Home Delivery so your prescription is written for a 90-day supply.
  • Generics provide you with a great opportunity to save money. A generic drug is a chemically equivalent, lower-cost version of a brand-name drug. The generic version becomes available when the brand-name drug's patent protection expires. Generics usually cost about half the price of the brand-name version. Regularly review your medications with your doctor or pharmacist and ask if a generic equivalent is available.
  • Talk with a pharmacist. Pharmacists at Express Scripts work behind the scenes to keep you safe and healthy, and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer questions at your convenience from the privacy of your home. They can check for potentially harmful interactions. Also, if you’re on specialty medications you can get support from our Specialty Medication Care Management Program at no cost.
  • Sticking to your medication schedule is truly the best way to make sure you get the most from your pharmacy benefit. Take your medication at the proper time and frequency as prescribed by your doctor, and refill and renew prescriptions as early as possible so you are never empty-handed. Download the Express Scripts mobile app or sign up for automatic refills to help you stay on track.
