Find out about the TRICARE Pharmacy Program, how you can enrol for it and how much you will have to pay for it.

TRICARE has a Pharmacy Program that allows you to access any and every prescription drug that you may need. It is an affordable, convenient and safe method of obtaining your prescription drugs. You can choose from military pharmacies, home delivery, network pharmacies and non-network pharmacies. In order to get your drugs, you will need a written prescription and a valid ID.

At present, the groups of people who are considered to be eligible for the TRICARE Pharmacy Program include the actively serving members of the military forces and their families, activated members of the National Guard or Reserve and their family members, people who have retired from service or from the National Guard or Reserve and their families, any survivors, spouses or ex-spouses, people who have been awarded the Medal of Honor and their family members, as well as all those people who have the TRICARE Reserve Select health care plan, TRICARE Retired Reserve health care plan, TRICARE Young Adult health care plan or the Continued Health Care Benefit Program.

It is essential for everyone wishing to avail the benefits of the Tricare Pharmacy Program to be registered in DEERS. People who are covered by the TRICARE Young Adult Prime health care plan or the US Family Health Plan will not be allowed to access the privileges of the TRICARE Pharmacy Program.

How much you end up paying depends on what your status is, the nature of the drug that you want, as well as where you are able to obtain the drug from. People who are actively serving in the armed forces can get their prescription drugs without paying at any pharmacy. In case they go to a non-network or network pharmacy, they may have to pay up front but a full reimbursement will be provided. Other beneficiaries can get a supply for 90 days without any co-payment from military pharmacies and the same amount via the home delivery service, although co-payment will be involved in this case. At a network pharmacy, a supply can be obtained for a month and co-payment will also be involved.
