Prescription Monitoring Program

Military treatment facility (MTF) providers may identify beneficiaries who may have "drug seeking behavior" or are at high risk of harming themselves through accidental overdose of narcotics and/or other high risk medications. Once identified, the provider may consider placing certain restrictions on the pharmacy benefit. The provider has the option to: 

  1. Restrict the beneficiary to all drugs to a specific pharmacy(s) and/or provider(s) 
  2. Restrict controlled medications for a beneficiary to a specific pharmacy or list of pharmacies and/or providers or list of provider 
  3. Exclude controlled medications or specific non-controlled medications through home delivery or at network pharmacies. 

The Prescription Monitoring Team at Express scripts will enter the restrictions into their system. They system will generate warnings to notify MTFs if a prescription conflicts with a prescriber and/or pharmacy restrictions for a beneficiary.
