Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) update

September 17, 2020

The TRICARE Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a quarterly review of beneficiaries receiving prescriptions for controlled substances and has been expanded to include a review of providers issuing prescriptions for controlled substances. Goals of the PMP include identifying beneficiaries who may benefit from additional assistance and education, as well as monitoring provider controlled substance prescribing practices.

Each quarter, the Defense Health Agency (DHA) will provide Humana Military with a list of East Region providers that have written prescriptions for controlled substances. Humana Military will review the report, and reach out to providers for additional information if needed. Humana Military may recommend clinical resources to the prescribing provider with the goal of increasing beneficiary safety and effectiveness of treatment. Find more information on this program in the TRICARE Operations Manual, Chapter 28
