TRICARE Outage Impact to Pharmacies

A reported cyberattack on the nation’s largest commercial prescription processor, Change Healthcare, has affected military clinics and hospitals worldwide. On Feb. 21, Change Healthcare disconnected their systems to protect patient information. This is impacting all military pharmacies worldwide and some retail pharmacies nationally.
 
Fort Riley pharmacies are currently filling outpatient prescriptions manually until this issue is resolved. Pharmacy will give priority to urgent prescriptions followed by routine prescriptions. Please be patient as it will take longer than usual to safely fill prescriptions.
 
Active Duty Service Members are encouraged to go to Farrelly Health Clinic pharmacy for urgent prescription needs.
