Some say stress can make you sick and having too much to do certainly contributes to stress. When to-do lists overfloweth, people can consider saving some time and hard-earned cash by filling prescriptions through TMOP, the TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy.

Using the TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy is easy, but how to get started depends on whether the customer is submitting a new or refill prescription.

To order a new prescription through TMOP, do one of the following:

· The patient's doctor can call Express Scripts toll-free at (877) 283-3858
· The patient's doctor can fax the order form and the written prescription to Express Scripts at (877) 895-1900
· The patient can complete an order form (print a blank order form at and mail the completed form and their written prescription to:
Express Scripts, Inc

· Order the refill by phone by calling the toll-free number on the prescription bottle
· Complete and mail back the refill form that came with the current prescription

TMOP can fill and deliver prescriptions anywhere in the United States and its territories, including APO/FPO addresses. The prescription is sent to the address of the customer's choice. It could be an office, home, or anywhere.

Not only is the service convenient, it will save money. Using TMOP, customers can order a 90-day supply of their medication and save up to 66 percent.

Although the TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy is a cost-savings over retail, remember that filling prescriptions at a local military clinic pharmacy remains the least expensive option for TRICARE beneficiaries. Additionally, refrigerated medications cannot be ordered through TMOP.
