The Pharmacy provides initial and refill pharmacy services for medications listed on the TRICARE Formulary.
Locations and Services
The Main Clinic pharmacy provides initial medication fills for patients with a Primary Care Manager (PCM) in the 75th Medical Group.
The Satellite Pharmacy provides initial medication fills from off-base providers and all medication refills called into the automated system. The Satellite Pharmacy can receive hand-carried or electronically ordered prescriptions, including controlled medication prescriptions.
ALL new prescriptions sent to the Pharmacy require telephone “activation.” Activation must be at least 24 hours prior to the requested pick up time. To activate your prescription(s), please call 801-777-0418.
You may also activate by text message. From a cellular phone, text “GET IN LINE” to 855-792-9010. Please allow up to 5 minutes for a response and then answer the questions received. Please note, the Pharmacy text-line hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Pharmacy has a mandatory call-in refill policy. Patients have the option of selecting the ScriptCenter machine or the Satellite Pharmacy window as their pick-up location. Medication(s) may be given up to a 90-day maximum supply. Patients may call in their refill(s) 24 hours-a-day.
Refill requests called in before 10:00 a.m. on a duty day will be ready for pick-up the next duty day after 9:00 a.m. Requests made after 10:00 a.m. will not be processed until the following duty day. If you have no remaining refills, please contact your PCM. Please provide the pharmacy one additional day to process refills after federal holidays and AFMC Family days.
Pharmacy Wait Times
Pharmacy peak wait times occur from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. daily and days before and after federal holidays. Wait times will be significantly reduced by visiting the pharmacy outside these peak hours.
DHA Med Card
Since the Pharmacy screens the DHA Med Card, you will need to present it when using pharmacy services. The Med Card is used to capture any other health insurance information. The Med Card is updated annually. If a patient wants someone to pick up their medication for them, it is encouraged that they document this permission on the Med Card.
A mobile application is available on Apple and Android phones. This allows the Med Card to be carried virtually on your smartphone instead of carrying the physical card with you. Search for "DHA Med Card" in your app store.
Information about the TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery and network pharmacies is available at the pharmacy, toll-free at 877-363-1296, or online at Express Scripts.
If you or a family member needs medications in combination with after-hours care, you may utilize a network pharmacy in the local community.
For active duty service members, there is no cost to use a network pharmacy. All other TRICARE Prime patients have a co-pay. The co-pay amount depends on whether the medication is generic, brand name, or non-formulary. More information is located at TRICARE Pharmacy Program.
A list of network pharmacies is located on the Express Scripts website at Express Scripts. By selecting the "Find a Pharmacy" link on the left side of the page, a listing of network pharmacies will be displayed. If you do not use a network pharmacy, you will have to pay for your medications when you pick them up.

- Where the prescription can be filled
- Copayments and limitations, such as when prior authorization is needed
- Coverage, review requirements, and forms
- Alternative medications, including costs
To start your search, enter the brand name or generic name of the drug and then select the strength prescribed, as well as your gender and age.
