PHOENIX — If the to-do list is overflowing, consider saving  time and hard-earned cash by filling prescriptions through the Tricare Mail Order Pharmacy.

TMOP can fill and deliver prescriptions anywhere in the United States and its territories, including Army Post Office and Fleet Post Office addresses.

Not only is the service convenient, it saves money.

Using TMOP, users can order a 90-day supply of medication and save up to 66 percent.

Although the TMOP is a cost-savings over retail pharmacies, remember that filling prescriptions at a local military clinic pharmacy remains the least expensive option for Tricare beneficiaries.

Additionally, refrigerated medications cannot be ordered through TMOP.

To order a new prescription through TMOP, complete an order form at www.express-scripts.com/tricare and mail the completed form and written prescription to:

Express Scripts, Inc
PO Box 52150
Phoenix, AZ 85072

To refill a prescription already received through TMOP, order online at www.express-scripts.com/members/tricare/; call the toll-free number on the prescription bottle; or complete and mail back the refill form that came with the current prescription.

TriWest does not administer the Tricare Mail Order Pharmacy program; it is administered by Express Scripts, Inc. 

Contact Express Scripts, Inc. at www.express-scripts.com/tricare, or call 877-363-1303, for more
information.
