Mission

 

The mission of the Pharmacy Department includes the following:

  • To provide pharmaceutical care to all patients authorized to receive prescriptions from the Naval Medical Center San Diego.
  • To exercise leadership in the Medical Center in all matters related to the use of drugs.
  • To support the education, training and research objectives of the Medical Center
  • To maintain medical readiness for war.

 

ATTENTION BENEFICIARIES!

 

Effective Oct. 1, 2011, some TRICARE prescription drug co-payments have changed. You may be paying more than you need to for a non-formulary medication when there are lower-cost, equally effective prescription drugs available that will reduce your out-of-pocket expense. Beneficiaries are encouraged to switch to Home Delivery for your pharmacy refills.

 

 

Naval Medical Center San Diego Pharmacy

 

Military Treatment Facility (MTF) pharmacies are your least expensive option for refills! MTF refills are FREE to you.

You can have formulary (covered generic and brand medications) prescriptions filled (up to a 90-day supply for most medications) at a Military Treatment Facility (MTF) pharmacy FREE of charge.

NMCSD offers several convenient ways to refill your prescriptions:

 

ONLINE - Use our online prescription refill service by clicking the "RX Refill" button in the toolbar of any page on this site. It is secure, fast, and free!

 

BY PHONE - One call takes care of it! Just call (619) 532-8400 to refill your prescription.

 

IN PERSON - We have four (4) locations where you may pick-up a refill prescription:

  • NAS, North Island Pharmacy
  • NTC Pharmacy
  • BMC Miramar Pharmacy
  • El Centro Pharmacy

 

Easy Step-by-Step to Start Refilling Prescriptions at NMCSD Today:

1. Beneficiaries do NOT have to enroll to use NMCSD pharmacies, simply swing by or call NMCSD’s patient administration (619-532-8319) to register in the Composite Health Care System, more commonly known by providers as CHCS, to start using your NMCSD’s pharmacy.)

2. Each new prescription must be presented to the pharmacy for initial filling. Once it is filled the first time, you will receive a prescription number. Thereafter you can refill online through the NMCSD webpage or via telephone. Pick up/delivery options vary (please see chart below).

3. Most MTFs medications can be found via the TRICARE formulary search tool: http://pec.ha.osd.mil/formulary_search.php

 

Home Delivery

 

It is the most convenient and cost saving way to refill your prescription. Shipping is free for a 90 day supply of generic medication to any address in the U.S. or overseas duty stations. A 90-day supply of generic medication is FREE to you versus $5-25 co-pay for a 30-day supply from a retail pharmacy. Home delivery also provides automatic prescription refills so you don’t have to worry about last minute phone calls or dashes to the pharmacy.

  • A 90 day generic prescription supply through Home Delivery is FREE.
  • You can save $60 per year for each generic prescription and $108 per year for each brand prescription by switching to Home Delivery.
  • To switch to home delivery for your pharmacy refills, visit: www.tricare.mil/homedelivery or call 1-877-782-8731.

    Retail (Network)

     

    At non-network pharmacies, you will pay full price for your medication and have to file a claim for reimbursement. Reimbursements are subject to deductible or out-of-network cost-shares and TRICARE-required copayments. All deductibles must be met before any reimbursement can be made. Another reason to use Home Delivery or MTF pharmacies.

     

    You can review your prescription-drug alternatives by using the formulary search tool at www.express-scripts.com/TRICARE.

     

    Be sure to discuss your prescription options with your doctor to determine if one of these lower-cost medications can work for you.
