    TriCare Standard Question

    Advertisements
    So I finally got into the doctor yesterday and she gave me a few prescriptions. I had her send them to the Riteaid up the street and asked DH to pick them up after work. Well he didn't have them when he got home and when I asked why he said they were trying to charge him over $200 for two prescriptions. I thought I only paid 20% with TriCare?

    If this isn't the case, and I get them sent to the pharmacy on base, they do it free, right?

    I believe with tricare standard its 15%. I always got my prescriptions from walgreens and never had an issue. I would just see if they have your info correct..it sounds like a mess up.

    Get a script and take them to walmart or the base! The base is free and walmart won't be more then $22. But they are usually only $3-$9

    with tricare standard I have never paid more than $22 for any script (even those that normally cost $300+, of which I paid $9). The $22 was for my bc because it was tier 3. Normally brand name cost $9 and generic cost $3. It really sounds like they didn't run your insurance.

    Sounds to me like they didn't have your insurance on file (or didn't have it updated or whatever). It won't cost that much with Tricare Standard, don't worry.

    There are NOOOOOOOOOOOO co-pays when it comes to prescriptions with Standard or Prime. You either pay $3, $9 or $22 when picking them up at a civilian pharmacy.

    TRICARE Retail Network Pharmacy

    * $3 for generic formulary medications
    * $9 for brand-name formulary medications
    * $22 for non-formulary medications
    * May receive up to a 30-day supply of most medications

    If your husband is anything like mine, he has NOOOOOOOOOO clue how Tricare insurance works...LOL!!! He should have presented your ID card as the insurance card. He might've not known that, and when you told him to pick it up, he did just that...picked it up....HAHA!

    For new prescriptions, your insurance card(military ID) must always be presented. Much different than refills, kwim?

    is Rite-Aid even an approved pharmacy facility for Tricare?
    I know it took years for Walmart to be approved. For a long time it could only be CVS or Walgreens and nothing else. Verify with Tricare that Rite-Aid is approved. If they are, then tell Rite-Aid to do it right cause you shouldn't be paying $200
