Details on Prescriptions, Pick-up, Refills, & More:

  • Prescriptions are not activated ahead of time until the patient checks in with pharmacy or calls the pharmacy to activate them.
  • Refills can be requested by calling the refill line at 707-423-7600.
  • Please allow up to 48 hours for pick-up, as some medication may need to be ordered in.
  • If you have no refills remaining, you must contact your provider through the MHS Genesis Portal or primary care provider. Prescriptions must be sent electronically to DOD Monterey by the provider.
  • Pharmacy dispensing window is open daily until 4 p.m. to pick up previously processed prescriptions and called-in refills.

TRICARE Formulary Search Tool

Use the TRICARE Formulary Search Tool to look up your drug. A search can tell you:
  • Formulary status (generic drug, brand-name drug, non-formulary drug, non-covered drug)
  • Where the prescription can be filled
  • Copayments and limitations, such as prior authorization
  • Coverage review requirements and forms
  • Alternative medications, including costs

To start your search, you’ll need to put in the brand name or generic name of the drug and then select the strength prescribed, as well as your gender and age.
