On January 1, 2022, your prescription drug copayments will increase. Congress determined this change to prescription drug copayments in the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act. If you are an active duty service member, you will continue to have $0 copays for covered drugs at military and retail pharmacies and through home delivery. See below new pharmacy copayment amounts for 2022.

Home Delivery through Express Scripts Pharmacy (Up to a 90-day supply)
  • Generic formulary drugs will be $12
