What is the best pharmacy option to fill my medication?

A prescription bottle sits on a counter next to a small pill.

Express Scripts provides the pharmacy benefit for TRICARE beneficiaries and their dependents. We’re here to help you find the most convenient and cost-effective way to fill your medication. Whether you have long-term medications or a one-time prescription, we’ve got you covered.

To get started, navigate the Formulary Search Tool (FST). The FST is a digital tool you can use to find out where you can fill your prescriptions at each point of service. A search of your medication provides coverage information and lists any relevant cost-shares.

Here are your pharmacy options:

TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery administered Express Scripts® Pharmacy

Home delivery is the most convenient way to get the medications you take on regular basis. Examples of conditions that might require ongoing medicine include: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart conditions.

With Express Scripts® Pharmacy, you'll get up to a 90-day supply of eligible medications delivered right to your door, with free shipping. Most medications arrive in 2-4 days. You can track your order online or through the Express Scripts® mobile app. With the mobile app you can also order refills, transfer medications from a retail pharmacy, make payments, and even set up reminders to take your medication.

In-network retail pharmacy

Filling your prescription at an in-network retail pharmacy is the best option for medications taken on a one-time basis. Your TRICARE pharmacy network includes chain pharmacies, independent neighborhood pharmacies, grocery stores, and wholesale warehouse stores. You can find an in-network retail pharmacy near you by using the find a pharmacy tool.

Military pharmacy

You can fill your prescriptions at a military pharmacy for free, if they have the drug in stock. Before you visit, call the military pharmacy to confirm your prescription is available.

If you aren’t already registered, create an online account through Express Scripts. You can view your prescription claims history, transfer eligible medications to home delivery, and stay up-to-date on the latest TRICARE pharmacy benefit news.
