Add an app to access TRICARE pharmacy benefits

FALLS CHURCH, Va. — TRICARE beneficiaries have pharmacy options available and accessible in the palm of their hand just by using TRICARE pharmacy contractor Express Script’s enhanced mobile application. The additions let beneficiaries use their smartphone to safely and securely manage their TRICARE pharmacy benefit.

The updated app includes medication reminders and an account registration tool. The reminder feature gives beneficiaries the option to set up daily alerts to make sure they take their medications as prescribed and don’t skip a dose. The account registration feature lets beneficiaries create their ESI account right on their smart phone.

Currently, the Express Rx app and mobile-optimized website allow beneficiaries to register for TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery and change current prescriptions over to home delivery. They can also order home delivery refills and check order status. Another feature lets beneficiaries look up information on their current prescriptions. For GPS-enabled smart phones, the app can direct beneficiaries to the nearest network retail pharmacy.

Smartphone users can download the app for free by going to www.express-scripts.com/mobile or using services like the Apple App Store or Android Marketplace. The mobile-optimized pharmacy website is accessible at http://m.esrx.com.

Other available free apps to download through the Apple App Store or Android Marketplace are the TriWest mobile app and the Defense Manpower Data Center’s milConnect mobile app.

For more information about the TRICARE pharmacy program, go to www.tricare.mil/pharmacy.
