As we face the COVID-19 pandemic, Express Scripts is committed to ensuring you get the medicine you need. Use these resources provided by your TRICARE pharmacy benefit to keep you and your family safe and healthy.

Obtain your medications safely by refilling and renewing from home

Now, more than ever, maintaining social distance is important to protect yourself and those around you. To avoid exposure to illness, here are options for refilling prescriptions from home:

Use TRICARE Home Delivery Pharmacy Program, a safe and convenient way to obtain prescriptions that you take regularly. You can easily manage prescription orders through our web portal, or mobile app. If you currently fill a 30-day supply at a local or military pharmacy, ask your doctor to e-prescribe a 90-day supply and send it to Express Scripts.

Try your local retail network pharmacy’s home delivery options. More than 56,000 pharmacy locations are in the TRICARE retail pharmacy network, including national chains, grocery chains and independent pharmacies. Pharmacies in the TRICARE network, including Walgreens, Walmart, Kroger, and Rite Aid, provide local delivery options for beneficiaries. Beneficiaries can locate pharmacies in the TRICARE network by using the Find a Pharmacy tool on our website and mobile app.

Stay adherent to your medication with the Express Scripts Mobile App®

Staying adherent to your medication is critical for your health, especially if you are managing chronic conditions. Take your medication as directed by your doctor and stay on track with refilling and renewing prescriptions. The Express Scripts Mobile App®  puts all your pharmacy needs within reach. Use it to set automatic refills for your prescriptions or set dose reminders that notify you when you need to take your medication.  

Utilize TRICARE's free Specialty Medication Care Management Program

Some health conditions are treated using specialty medications. These are usually self-administered, injectable or oral medications that treat serious, chronic conditions like cancer or multiple sclerosis. The Specialty Medication Care Management Program connects you with nurses, pharmacists and patient care advocates who specialize in your condition and can help you receive the greatest benefit from your medication. Your maintenance medications are shipped safely to the location of your choice and refill reminders help to ensure you never miss a dose.
