News: Prescriptions made easy: TRICARE pharmacy home delivery program saves time, money
Story by Senior Airman Trevor Rhynes
MCCONNELL AIR FORCE BASE, Kan. - Going to the pharmacy to have your prescription filled can take some planning. You have to determine how much time to dedicate to visit and how much money you may need to pick up your medication. Even going to the local Medical Treatment Facility pharmacy will at least cost you some gas from driving to and from home. This is why the TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery option could be perfect for you.
The TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery is your least expensive option when not using a military pharmacy for filling your maintenance medications. These are the same medications you may use on a regular basis for health conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
You can get up to a 90-day supply of maintenance medications delivered directly to your home - a very nice convenience especially during really cold or hot weather or when road conditions are not so great. A pharmacist is available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have concerning your medications.
Copay for a 90-day supply of generic medication is free, while brand medication costs $13. You can save $38 for every brand-name drug each time you fill your prescription through the TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery instead of the retail network.
