Pharmacy prescription policy to change

DYESS AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --

Starting Oct. 1, the 7th Medical Group pharmacy will no longer be able to fill TRICARE non-formulary tier-3 medications for patients who are not enrolled at the Military Treatment Facility.

 

This change is in accordance with the Department of Defense Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee (P&T Committee) and the Defense Health Agency Pharmacy Operations Division.

For those affected, patients with a Tricare Network provider may utilize TRICARE Home Delivery to continue receiving non-formulary medication.

Individuals may also work with their primary care providers to prescribe alternative prescriptions that can be filled at the MTF pharmacy.

To identify if a medication is a tier-3 non-formulary medication, the TRICARE Formulary Search Tool may be used at: https://www.express-scripts.com/tform/index.html.

 

If you have any questions, call the 7th MDG pharmacy at 325-696-4677.
