Military hospitals and clinics on bases/posts generally have their own pharmacy and offer the least expensive prescription option. E-prescribe is an electronic prescribing capability for civilian providers to send prescription orders directly to a military hospital or clinic pharmacy.
TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery is the preferred option for beneficiaries if the military facility pharmacy does not have the drug prescribed. All prescriptions filled through home delivery must have the prescriber’s handwritten signature.
TRICARE retail pharmacy network consists of approximately 60,000 retail pharmacies in the United States and most US territories including Guam, N. Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Non-network retail pharmacies may not accept TRICARE and as the most expensive option, is not recommended for beneficiaries.
