Mail-order prescriptions to end in Germany

By October 7, 2012

Follow me on:

Military family members and retirees in Germany who use Tricare's mail order system for prescriptions will have to fill their medications locally by the end of the year, according to an Army Times article.

On or near that date, the U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering pharmaceuticals to APO and FPO addresses in Germany because a host-nation law prohibits importation of medications through the mail, according to a letter sent Oct. 1 by Tricare to beneficiaries in the country.
