No Change to Current Retail Pharmacy Network for TRICARE Beneficiaries

9/5/2012

Express Scripts has determined it will maintain the same robust retail pharmacy network of more than 57,000 pharmacies available to TRICARE beneficiaries. Walgreens left the TRICARE retail pharmacy network when their contract with Express Scripts expired on December 31, 2011. On July 19, 2012, Express Scripts and Walgreens announced a new network agreement on July 19, 2012. However, in line with TRICARE Management Activity's commitment to the efficient management of the TRICARE Pharmacy benefit, Walgreens will remain designated as a non-network pharmacy provider for TRICARE beneficiaries.

TRICARE offers several options to meet your prescription needs.
