Getting Your Medication

Home Delivery

You can skip the trip to the pharmacy to get long-term medications to treat conditions like high cholesterol, blood pressure, or thyroid issues. We’ll ship 90-day refills right to you in secure, weather-resistant packaging. Delivery is convenient and costs less than a trip to the retail pharmacy.

You can also choose Automatic Refills and we’ll send your medication before you run out.

We know choice is important to you and your health.

You have two other options for getting prescription medication. Choose what works for your time and budget. Don’t worry, you can always change your mind.

Retail Pharmacy

Get your medication at a retail pharmacy in the TRICARE network. A copay is required for each 30-day supply.

Create an Account
