Dear Patientsof Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune (NHCL)
Due to a recent ruling by the DOD (Department of Defense), tamsulosin (Flomax) will only be available through TMOP (Tricare mail order pharmacy) or Retail Pharmacies. NHCL carries terazosin 1,2, 5 & 10mg, and alfuzosin (Uroxatral) 10mg SR in place of Flomax.
Your provider may wish to switch you to one of these medications. Another option is to have your provider write you a new prescription for Flomax which you may have filled at a network retail pharmacy at a co-pay of $22 for a 30 day supply or through TMOP at a co-pay of $22 for a 90 day supply. If your provider deems it medically necessary for you to continue on Flomax and the proper medical necessity form is approved (www.tricare.osd.mil/pharmacy/medical-nonformulary.cfm.) then the co-pay drops to $9 for a 30 day supply or $9 for a 90 day supply respectively. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your pharmacist at 450-4171 or healthcare provider.
There have been several changes to the formulary in the past few months. Please take note to see if any of the changes affect you or your family members.
