Get TRICARE Prescriptions Via Cell Phone App


TRICARE officials recently announced an enhanced mobile phone application. The new additions allow beneficiaries to manage their TRICARE pharmacy benefits via a secure cell phone connection. New features include medication reminders, which allows beneficiaries to set up daily alertsalerts to make sure they take their medications as prescribed and don’t skip a dose.

The new app also includes an account registration feature, which lets beneficiaries create their ESI account right on their smart phone.

“The Express Rx mobile app gives beneficiaries access to their prescription information anytime, anywhere,” said Rear Adm. Thomas J. McGinnis, chief of TRICARE Pharmacy Operations.

Currently, the Express Rx app and mobile-optimized website allow beneficiaries to register for TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery and change current prescriptions over to home delivery. They can also order home delivery refills and check order status. Another feature lets beneficiaries look up information on their current prescriptions. For GPS-enabled smart phones, the app can direct beneficiaries to the nearest network retail pharmacy.

Smartphone users can download the app for free by going to www.express-scripts.com/mobile or using services like the Apple App Store or Android Marketplace. The mobile-optimized pharmacy website is accessible at http://m.esrx.com.

Other available free apps to download through the Apple App Store or Android Marketplace are the TriWest mobile app and the Defense Manpower Data Center’s milConnect mobile app. Beneficiaries in the South Region can make use of the mobile Humana Military website, https://m.humana-military.com/ while beneficiaries in the North Region can use the mobile Health Net mobile site, https://m.healthnet.com.
