Healthcare Provider Tools We Offer

MTF Provider Portal

Express Scripts Military Provider Portal is an online prescription management tool for military health system providers. The portal provides a secure online process for end-to-end prescription management, including new prescriptions, renewals, and exception management. You can also access PMP reporting.

Formulary Search Tool

The TRICARE Formulary Search Tool makes it easy to find information about medications including cost, drug alternatives, and coverage rules. Using this tool, you and your TRICARE patients can make informed choices about their medication therapy. You can search using either the brand or generic medication name.

Real-Time Prescription Benefits

Real-Time Prescription Benefit provides patient-specific pharmacy benefit information in less than two seconds. You must have Real-Time Prescription Benefit functionality embedded in your Electronic Health Record (EHR).

When you create a new prescription, the tool displays data about coverage and costs for therapeutic options. It helps you answer patients’ questions about drug coverage and available alternatives.

Learn more from the Real-Time Prescription Benefit Overview.

Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs

The Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) supports MTFs and the TRICARE Managed Care Support Contractors with the identification of patients at risk of misusing prescription medications. At-risk patients may have their pharmacy benefit restricted in order to prevent or decrease drug seeking behavior. Learn more.

The MHS Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) utilizes the National Associate of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) Prescription Monitoring Program Interconnect (PMPi) to securely exchange controlled substance prescription data between the Military Health System and participating civilian counterparts.

MHS providers, pharmacists, and their staff can access the system to view controlled medications dispensed from all MTFs and states/entities currently sharing data with the MHS PDMP. Learn more about PMP.
