Why TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery?

Here are five good reasons to sign up for home delivery.

  1. TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery is convenient. You don’t need to set aside time for a trip to the pharmacy since your prescriptions are shipped to you.Express Scripts, which administers the TRICARE Pharmacy Program, coordinates home delivery. Express Scripts will ship to any address in the United States and U.S. territories. This includes APO, FPO, and DPO addresses. There are a few restrictions you should be aware of. Express Scripts usually can’t ship prescriptions that need refrigeration to American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, or other overseas locations. In Germany, you can’t receive medications through home delivery, but you can receive medical supplies.

  2. Wondering about costs? Prescriptions you get from via home delivery may cost less than prescriptions you get from a retail pharmacy. You can receive up to a 90-day supply of your prescription for one copayment. This is delivered to you with free standard shipping. In contrast, you pay three copayments for a 90-day supply at TRICARE retail network pharmacies.

  3. Home delivery comes with helpful features to manage your prescriptions. You can manage home delivery prescriptions online, by phone, or with the free Express Scripts Pharmacy Mobile App. You can get notifications about your prescription and order status. They can also remind you to approve prescription refills.

  4. Do you have questions about your medication? Express Scripts has pharmacists who can help. They can answer your questions about side effects, dosages, and more. Pharmacists are available through your Express Scripts online account and the Express Scripts Pharmacy mobile app.

  5. Get specialty drugs delivered to you. As of March 1, Accredo provides specialty drugs and clinical services if you fill specialty prescriptions with home delivery. You may have to switch to home delivery if you take a specialty drug and use a retail pharmacy. This requirement follows changes to the TRICARE Pharmacy Program. Accredo is an accredited specialty pharmacy.
