The outpatient pharmacy policies which govern the prescribing and dispensing of medications are recommended by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee and approved by the Hospital Commander. Although prescription policies may sometimes appear unreasonable or arbitrary, they are actually intended to provide uninterrupted availability of medication, and ensure that they are used in accordance with professional practice standards, Army Regulations and Federal Law. Accordingly, patients can expect pharmacy policies to be applied with uniformity and consistency by the pharmacy staff with the intent of providing the best service possible.
Patients are required to show their military ID cards to verify eligibility for care and to ensure that medications are dispensed to the correct patient. Another person can act as your agent to drop off or pick up prescriptions. They must have your ID card to transact your business.
