The TRICARE Mail Order Program Was Cost Efficient and Adequate Dispensing Controls Were in Place


What We Did

We performed this audit on the TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy (TMOP) program as requested by Congressional members from the Senate and the House of Representatives. The objective of the audit was to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of selected aspects of the TMOP program. We determined it was generally more cost efficient for beneficiaries to obtain pharmaceuticals through the TMOP program than through retail pharmacies. In addition, adequate controls in the TMOP program over dispensing pharmaceuticals were in place.
