Using Home Delivery when you have OHI

In addition to TRICARE, many beneficiaries have additional insurance coverage, often through their employer, Medicare Part D, or another private insurance program. This is commonly referred to as other health insurance (OHI). If you have OHI with a prescription plan, you’re not eligible to use Home Delivery unless one of the following applies to you:

  • Your OHI does not cover pharmacy benefits.
  • Your medication is not covered by your OHI.
  • You’ve met your OHI’s benefit cap (i.e., you have met your benefit’s maximum coverage limit).
