TRICARE Pharmacy Benefits – There's an App for That!

FALLS CHURCH, Va. - TRICARE and Express Scripts, Inc. (ESI) are pleased to announce the launch of the TRICARE Express Rx mobile app and mobile-optimized website.  These tools allow TRICARE beneficiaries to manage their prescriptions and access important health information safely and securely from anywhere using their smart phone.

The Express Rx app and mobile-optimized website will allow beneficiaries to register for TRICARE pharmacy home delivery and switch current prescriptions over to home delivery.  Beneficiaries can also order home delivery refills and check order status.  Another feature allows beneficiaries to look up information on their current prescriptions.  On GPS-enabled smart phones, the app can direct beneficiaries to the closest retail pharmacy in their network.

"Improving convenience for our beneficiaries and broadening access to necessary services like prescription information is a key focus for TRICARE," said Rear Adm. Thomas J. McGinnis, chief of TRICARE Pharmacy Operations. "Express Rx is yet another way for beneficiaries to use their benefit wisely and conveniently, anytime and anywhere." 

To ensure security and data protection, beneficiaries must register through the member portal at www.express-scripts.com/TRICARE before logging in to the Express Rx app or mobile-optimized site.  Once registered, the same username and password allow access to the Express Rx app and mobile-optimized website.  ESI is the TRICARE Pharmacy contractor.

Smartphone users can download the app for free by going to www.express-scripts.com/mobile or by using services like the Apple App Store or Android Marketplace.  The mobile-optimized pharmacy website can be accessed at http://m.esrx.com.  TRICARE beneficiaries in the South Region can also make use of the mobile Humana Military website, https://m.humana-military.com/.
