TRICARE Pharmacy Copays Change February 1, 2016


Military pharmacies and TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery will remain the lowest
cost pharmacy option for TRICARE beneficiaries when some TRICARE pharmacy copays
change in 2016. On Feb 1, 2016, most copays for prescription drugs at Home
Delivery and retail network pharmacies will increase slightly.

The 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) requires TRICARE to change
its prescription copays. All drugs at military pharmacies, and generic drugs
through Home Delivery, are still available at no cost to beneficiaries. Copays
for brand name drugs through Home Delivery increase from $16 to $20, for up to a
90-day supply. At retail pharmacies, generic drug copays go from $8 to $10, and
brand name drug copays go from $20 to $24 dollars, for up to a 30-day supply.
Copays for non-formulary drugs and for drugs at non-network pharmacies will also

Beneficiaries can save up to $208 in 2016 for each brand name prescription drug
they switch from retail pharmacy to Home Delivery. Home Delivery offers safe and
convenient delivery of your prescription drugs right to your mailbox.
