Prescription Monitoring Program

Military treatment facility (MTF) providers may identify beneficiaries who potentially 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 a specific pharmacy(s) and/or provider(s) for all medications.
  2. Restrict controlled medications for a beneficiary to a specific pharmacy or list of pharmacies and/or providers or list of providers.
  3. Restrict specific medication(s) or class(es) of medications.

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