Changes to TRICARE Pharmacy Network

The TRICARE pharmacy network contractor, Express Scripts Inc (ESI) announced that effective December 1, 2016, Walgreens Drug stores will be added to the pharmacy network and the CVS drug store chain will be dropped from the network. This change is intended to provide better value and maintain convenient access for beneficiaries. The addition of Walgreens into the network means that 98 percent of TRICARE beneficiaries will still have a network pharmacy within 5 miles of their home. This new network will have more than 57,000 locations nationwide, and ensures TRICARE beneficiaries have timely access to retail pharmacies in their community.
