On-base military pharmacies worldwide may soon change or reduce their offerings of free over-the-counter (OTC) medications as Tricare administrators standardize the list of what’s available.

Currently, military retirees and other beneficiaries can receive certain medications for free and without a prescription through a long-standing OTC medication program. How the program is administered and how many medications each user can get per month varies by location. Typically, users must fill out a request form, and medications are often capped at four or five per beneficiary.

Which medications are offered can also differ widely by pharmacy or service branch. For example, a list of medications available at Fort Gordon, Georgia includes anti-diarrheal drug loperamide and condoms, while a list from the Navy’s health clinic in Annapolis, Maryland does not include either option, but does offer Chloraseptic throat drops.
