Have you heard about the changes to the TRICARE retail pharmacy network that began Dec. 15? CVS Pharmacy joined the network on that date. At the same time, Walmart, Sam’s Club, and some community pharmacies left the network. If you’re a TRICARE For Life (TFL) beneficiary, you may be wondering how these changes affect the coverage of your current drugs. They don’t.
“There will be no changes to your overall TFL pharmacy coverage of the current drugs that you’re taking,” said Col. Markus Gmehlin, chief of the Pharmacy Operations Division at the Defense Health Agency. “This change only affects some of the retail pharmacies in the TRICARE network.”
Here are some more details to help you navigate these changes.
