19th Medical Group Pharmacy Services
We have two different pharmacies co-located in the same area. The Main pharmacy is for prescriptions from off-base providers and the Refill pharmacy is for all refills and new prescriptions from on-base providers.
Faxed prescriptions cannot be accepted; however, your provider can submit your prescription electronically. Ask your provider to send your prescription to DOD LITTLE ROCK EPHCY, then check in at the Main pharmacy to have your prescription filled. Note: Prescriptions for controlled substances cannot be submitted electronically.
Please use the Automated Refill Call-In System or TRICARE Online to order your refills. Refill requests received before 12 p.m. will be ready after 12 p.m. in two duty days.
If a medication is not on our formulary, our clinical pharmacist will determine if it can be ordered based on TRICARE guidelines and your medication history. This process may take up to five duty days.
Please ask to be enrolled in our auto-notify service that will text or call you when your prescription is ready. You can be enrolled in person or drop a request in the drop box including a good phone number and your preference for a text or automated phone call.
