Pharmacy

All prescriptions will be filled via the drive thru pharmacy located left of the main entrance. Follow the signs in the main parking lot. Please check in with the technician in the drive thru traffic flow building.

Due to Covid-19, ALL patients must use drive-thru or phone services unless presenting to the pharmacy directly following an appointment by a provider within the 72d MDG.**

Manage Your Prescriptions

TRICARE Pharmacy Program

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.

New Prescriptions

Tinker Pharmacy processes all new and refill prescriptions from 72d MDG and civilian providers.

We can accept hard copy prescriptions and prescriptions sent electronically to DOD TINKER EPHCY. 

We CANNOT accept faxed or telephone orders.

There are three ways to activate your prescriptions. Prescriptions will be available for pick-up the next duty day after 1200:

  1. In person by dropping hard copy prescriptions in the drop box at the front of the Medical Group main entrance

  2. Via telephone by calling the main number listed above

  3. TRICARE Online Secure Messaging.  Please note that you must add “Tinker AFB Pharmacy” as a provider before you can message the pharmacy team via Secure Messaging. 

    1. All prescriptions must be activated BEFORE they will be filled by the pharmacy

Refills

  1. Refills must be requested via the pharmacy refill line (405-734-5514) or submitted via TRICARE Online.

    1. Refills can be called in 7 days early for a 30 day supply and 21 days early for a 90 day supply.

  2. Refills will take 2-3 duty days to process but may take longer for holidays and training days. Please plan ahead. The automated system will tell you the date and time your refill will be ready for pickup.

  3. If you have no refills remaining or your prescription is expired, you will need to contact your PCM team or civilian provider to have your prescription renewed.  Please call the pharmacy to activate the renewed prescription once your provider has entered the prescriptions.

Transfers

Refills for prescriptions filled at another pharmacy (military or civilian) may be transferred to the Tinker AFB Pharmacy by contacting staff through the main telephone line or Tricare ONLINE Secure Messaging.

To transfer a prescription, you will need:
  • Name and strength of the medications you wish to transfer
  • Name and phone number of the pharmacy the prescription was originally filled at.
The prescription must have at least one refill remaining and be less than one year from the original fill date to be eligible for a transfer. 

Controlled substances (Schedule III – V) can be transferred only once. (Must have refills remaining and be less than six months from the original fill date).  Schedule II medications are not eligible for prescription transfer by federal law.

Transferred prescription will be ready for pick-up in 3-5 duty days.

Formulary

The Pharmacy will fill all medications covered under the TRICARE formulary.  Some medications are not covered, or require medical necessity documentation before they can be filled.
To receive a medication listed as non-formulary (tier 3 medications) under the TRICARE formulary, the patient MUST be empaneled to a provider at Tinker AFB MTF.

If your medication is not available at the base pharmacy, you may utilize a TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy Program (TMOP) for home delivery or a local network pharmacy; co-pays may apply. For more information regarding medication availability, please call 1-877-363-1303 or visit www.express-scripts.com for more information.
