The Military Health System continues to work on resolving the cyber-attack on a third party partner and is doing their best to fill emergent, new, and refill prescriptions as quickly and efficiently as possible.
If you are post operative, or need refills on life sustaining medications you will take priority for filling. At this time, we can process all prescriptions, but please be patient as there will be longer than normal wait times. All prescriptions processed must go through manual safety screenings, which increases processing time.
If you would like to have your prescription transferred to a TRICARE approved network provider, simply stop by one of the locally approved vendors, ask for the transfer and they will work with us to make that happen for you.  Please note copays may be incurred.
We are truly sorry for this inconvenience and look forward to serving you when normal operations resume.
