How ePrescribing Works
First, your doctor enters your information into an e-prescribing application and selects the "TRICARE" formulary to view medications covered by the TRICARE pharmacy benefit.
Then, your doctor sends your prescription directly to TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery — by selecting "Express Scripts Mail Pharmacy" — or a network retail pharmacy of your choice. It's that simple!
Note: Currently, pharmacies at military treatment facilities (MTFs) do not accept e-prescriptions. If you prefer to have your prescriptions filled at an MTF, you may ask for a written prescription.
