A.No, although Express Scripts and Walgreens signed a network agreement in 2012, Walgreens is still a non-network pharmacy for TRICARE beneficiaries.
You may get your prescription filled at Walgreens but you’ll pay more. You’ll need to pay the full prescription cost upfront and file a claim for partial reimbursement after you meet your deductible. Visit the costs page for details.
As a TRICARE beneficiary you have access to more than 57,000 network pharmacies; there’s usually another network pharmacy within one-half mile of a Walgreens.
