WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 7, 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, or 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 change.

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.
