    post-EAS prescriptions?

    Advertisements
    This might be a really stupid question, but

    DH is in the process of VEERPing, and if his package is approved, he'll EAS on the 1st of October. My question is... I just got a new prescription for a year of BC in... March? When he gets out, will it be valid? Like... will I be able to just transfer it to a pharmacy at home and continue to fill it? Obviously, I won't be covered through TRICARE, but I have my parent's insurance. I'm just wondering whether I'll need to go back to the doctor or if I'll be able to finish my year.

    Yes, the prescription is in no way tied to his service. It doesn't matter who issued it. As long as it is a valid prescription, you can transfer it to another pharmacy or keep it at the same pharmacy (if it isn't military) and pay with different insurance or out of pocket.
