Update

Due to the rapidly evolving developments related to the current national emergency concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak, CRDAMC has taken many precautions to protect our patients, staff and the Fort Hood community. We apologize for any delays or confusion about the changes occurring during your visit to any of our Outpatient Pharmacy sites. All prior messages regarding the Main Hospital and Clear Creek PX Outpatient Pharmacies are obsolete. The information below is current as of 4/1/2020.

Fort Hood patrons, in our effort to support COVID-19 preventive measures, CRDAMC Main Outpatient Pharmacy and Clear Creek PX Pharmacy have implemented a mandatory prescription drop-off process starting Friday, 20 March 2020. Patients must drop-off all prescriptions for processing. Please return for pick-up after receiving notification. If 24 hours have elapsed without notification, please reach out to the respective pharmacy for details. Other pharmacy sites will continue their normal prescription processing.

YOUR OPTIONS FOR PHARMACY SERVICES

During this time, the overarching best course of action for beneficiaries is, in order to limit opportunities for exposure, to switch prescriptions to TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery. By switching, you can get up to a 90-day supply of most medications safely and conveniently delivered to your home or APO/FPO address (please note that quantity limits apply, laws for mailing certain medications such as controlled substances vary state-by-state, home delivery is not available in Germany, and co-pays apply for non- Active Duty beneficiaries).

To switch to home delivery, the easiest way to transfer your prescription is via the Express Scripts mobile app or online at militaryrx.express-scripts.com/home-delivery.

You can also call and speak with your military pharmacy for ways to switch your prescription to home delivery or retail.

For those who need their prescriptions urgently, you can access up to three, 30-day supplies of medications at retail network pharmacies (up to three copays apply). If you have an active prescription on file at a military pharmacy, ask your retail pharmacist to contact your military pharmacy to make a transfer. In the event the transfer cannot be coordinated, you may need to call your prescriber to obtain a prescription that you can take to the pharmacy of your choice. Copayments are directed by statute and the Department of Defense (DoD) cannot waive them.

MANAGING YOUR PHARMACY SUPPLY

We do not encourage patients to acquire more than a 90-day supply. Our first priority is to ensure those with emergencies have access to their medications. Early refills (when more than 25% of supply remain) are processed on an emergency, case-by-case basis.

We understand the desire to be prepared. Present conditions do not call for us to enact early refills at Home Delivery or retail, but we are monitoring the situation closely and are updating our information and policies as the situation requires.

We are encouraging beneficiaries to refill their medications at the appropriate time. Standard refill policies, which allow you to refill or renew a prescription medication when 25% of your current prescription is remaining, should help you stay on track with your medication during this time.

Pharmacy Refills at Main Hospital and Clear Creek PX

Pharmacy refills are filled by calling the automated refill line at 254-288-8911 or 1-800-351-3636. Prescriptions will be ready in 3 days. This is mandatory for all refill orders.

New Pharmacy Prescriptions

New Prescriptions for Main Hospital and Clear Creek PX Pharmacy require the mandatory drop-off process. All outlying clinics have their own rules for prescription processing.

After those TWO TIMES, you will be asked to pay the full prescription price.

***Drive-Thru Tip***

If you turn your vehicle engine off while waiting, we strongly recommend you not leave your radio on because we have had several patients experience battery-related drainage events. If you have a mobile phone, it may be best to listen to music on that device while waiting in line if your vehicle is not running.
