Tricare patients’ deadline to switch pharmacy is Dec. 1 | MilitaryTimes

It happens at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 1 — CVS leaves the Tricare retail pharmacy network and Walgreens returns.

Tricare patients who now use CVS should transfer their prescriptions to another pharmacy in the Tricare network, because if you have a prescription filled at a CVS pharmacy after Dec. 1, you’ll pay full retail price. You can file a claim for partial reimbursement of the cost, but since CVS will be considered an out-of-network pharmacy, Tricare will reimburse only 50 percent of the cost.
