New TRICARE Formulary Search Tool 

7/8/2010 

Beneficiaries and providers can use the new TRICARE formulary search tool to find the most up-to-date information about prescription medications. Located at http://pec.ha.osd.mil/formulary_search.php, the new formulary search tool allows beneficiaries to easily find which medicines are in the uniform formulary.  These are available at all full-service military treatment facilities and covered by TRICARE.  Once a user has identified if a drug is available, they can use the search tool to get information on the drug, such as restriction on use.  The tool also shows if the medication is Tier One (with a $3 co-pay,) Tier Two (with a $9 co-pay) or non-formulary (requiring a $22 co-pay.)  It also shows when a generic equivalent is required. To read this release, please visit: http://www.tricare.mil/mediacenter/news.aspx?fid=641
