Important Advisory for TRICARE Members
Approximately 2 weeks ago, NHF and HFA responded to community concerns about important pharmacy changes for individuals covered by TRICARE, the health care program of the United States Department of Defense (DOD) Military Health System.  As a reminder, a letter was sent by Express Scripts, TRICARE’s pharmacy benefit manager, in October notifying some beneficiaries that effective November 4, 2009 they would no longer be able to receive their specialty medications (including clotting factor) from certain providers.  The letter listed  three alternative providers that individuals could contact for services along with a toll-free number to contact Express Scripts.  However, the guidance was unclear and resulted in confusion  for some  TRICARE members. 
NHF and HFA have discussed our concerns with Express Scripts and are pleased to provide you with a letter to clarify changes to the network.  View a copy of the letter and a list of participating hemophilia specialty pharmaciesClick here to view a copy of the TRICARE Pharmacy Program handbook.
