If you fill prescriptions with a TRICARE network pharmacy, there will soon be changes you may need to know about. Starting December 15, 2021, CVS Pharmacy will join the TRICARE network while Walmart, Sam’s Club and some community pharmacies will leave it.
The current TRICARE retail pharmacy network offers access to over 59,000 pharmacies. With this change, nearly 90% of beneficiaries will have access to a network pharmacy within five miles of their home.
If you have a prescription at Walmart, Sam’s Club, or any other impacted pharmacy, you need to transfer it to a new network pharmacy before Dec. 15. If you filled a prescription at one of the impacted pharmacies, you’ll receive communication from Express Scripts. These communications will have recommendations on how you can fill your prescriptions at a new network pharmacy. You can also find a network pharmacy near you by visiting the Express Scripts website.
