Prescription Monitoring Program

The Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is designed to identify potential unsafe behavior with regard to controlled medications and prevent or decrease the risk of overutilization by restriction implementation.

Identification & Enrollment

  • Express Scripts identifies PMP candidates for enrollment based on pre-determined criteria, including utilization patterns of controlled substances and/or other high risk medications.
  • Identified beneficiaries are submitted to the respective TRICARE Managed Care Support Contractor (MCSC) or the assigned Military Treatment Facility (MTF) to review prescription history in conjunction with medical history to determine enrollment.
  • Identification can also occur internally by the TRICARE MCSC or MTF.
  • Beneficiaries, at their own request (for example, in the case of identity theft, may enroll themselves. Beneficiaries with restrictions entered at their own request may dis-enroll from the program at any time and remove all restrictions.
