You should get your prescriptions filled before you travel. But, if you need a prescription filled while traveling you can:

  • Go to a military pharmacy if one is nearby. You should call them first to see if they stock your prescription.
  • Find the closest network pharmacy, which are available in the U.S. and U.S. Territories.
  • Use home delivery if you're taking a long vacation. You can arrange for any regular prescriptions to be filled via home delivery.
