How do formularies impact prescription costs and availability within the defense health system?  
Military Treatment Facilities are required to stock a DoD specified list of medications. It is DoD’s policy to substitute generic medications for brand-name medications when available to minimize pharmaceutical costs. However, brand-name drugs that have a generic equivalent may be dispensed if the prescribing physician is able to justify medical necessity for its use over the generic equivalent. Co-payments for brand-name prescription drugs obtained through retail pharmacies covered by TRICARE are higher than those for generic prescription drugs.
