Do you make the most of your TRICARE pharmacy benefit? Express Scripts can help you manage your prescription costs and the medicine you take. Here are five tools included in your pharmacy benefit you’ll want to start using today if you’re not already.

Price a Medication tool

To see if a specific medication is covered, get prescription information using the Price a Medication tool. The Price a Medication tool shows you your cost at local network pharmacies and at home delivery so you can easily find the best value for your prescriptions. To price a medication, login to your online account or download the Express Scripts® mobile app.

Express Scripts® mobile app

The Express Scripts® mobile app makes it easy to manage your prescriptions anytime, anywhere. Set up dose reminders and you’ll get daily notifications on your mobile device when it’s time to take your medication. You can also use the app to check refill status and track a prescription order.

Online account

If you haven’t already, create an online account to easily manage your pharmacy benefit information. You can submit a pharmacy claim online and easily manage your pharmacy claims all in one place. You can also review your Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statements to understand your prescription claims and how much you saved.

TRICARE Formulary Search Tool

Looking to see if your medication is covered? Use the TRICARE Formulary Search Tool to check coverage of your prescriptions. A completed search of your medication will also show how much you will pay at different fill locations, and alternative drug options, such as brand name or generic forms. You can also see if the medication requires prior authorization and medical necessity forms your doctor may need to process your prescription.
