I need a refill on my medicine, but I can't pick it up before you close. What can I do?
The ScriptCenter Express Prescription Refill and Pickup Center is an automated refill dispensing machine located in the AAFES Exchange's Food Court area.
Refills can be picked up Monday-Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. New, controlled (narcotic), and refrigerated prescriptions can't be sent to the ScriptCenter.
NOTE: A prescription number is required to register for ScriptCenter; registration is required one time during initial use. Once a prescription is ordered through the ScriptCenter, it will be available for pick-up the next duty day after 2 p.m.

Another option is mail order home delivery via Express Scripts: TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery is a safe, convenient and low cost option to get maintenance drugs. You can get up to a 90-day supply, as opposed to a 30-day supply from a retail pharmacy. You save up to $176 a year for every brand name drug you switch to Home Delivery. Military pharmacies offer up to a 90-day supply of drugs at zero copay, but not all drugs are available. Check with your Los Angeles AFB pharmacy to see if they carry your prescription.
NOTE: Starting Oct. 1, 2015, a new law requires all TRICARE beneficiaries, except active-duty service members, to get select brand name maintenance drugs through either TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery or from a military pharmacy. Beneficiaries who keep using a retail pharmacy for these drugs will have to pay the full cost.
