With the exception of “special order” or “non-formulary” medications, you can pick up most of your prescriptions (new and refill), to include controlled substances, at any of the military pharmacies (Tripler, Schofield, Hickam, Pearl Harbor or Kaneohe Bay), regardless of where the prescription was originally entered. You are not restricted to one particular pharmacy. For example, you can go to Tripler to receive your prescription that was originally put into the Pearl Harbor pharmacy and vice versa.

NOTE: If your doctor or the pharmacy told you that the medication is a “special order” or “non-formulary” medication, please pick up the first fill of the prescription where it was originally entered (i.e. if seen at Tripler and entered in at Tripler, you need to pick it up at Tripler). Also, please be advised that these specialty medication requests can take up to several days to be reviewed and approved or denied. Check with your provider or the Pharmacy before coming to have the prescription filled. In most cases, any refills for the “special order” medication may be picked up at any other military pharmacy on the island. Please call in your refill ahead of time to make sure the pharmacy has enough time to order the medication and fill your prescription.

ID Card Policy

In order to pick up a prescription, the patient's military (CAC) or dependent ID card, a front and back facsimile copy of the ID card, (photocopy, digital image, phone picture or text message image), or Eligibility Form 490 from the Treasurer's Office are the accepted forms of identification. This is the preferred and easiest way to pick up prescriptions for a patient. In the absence of one of the above items, the individual picking up the medications should be able to verify the patient’s name, date of birth, and the medication(s) they are picking up for the patient, as a sign that they are authorized to act on behalf of the patient. All individuals picking up controlled substances must show a valid government-issued ID card. Only relatives or friends 14 years old or older are considered to have decision-making capacity and can pick up a relative or friend’s prescription. The dispensing pharmacist may still use discretion to withhold dispensing the prescription to someone other than the patient if they feel the person picking up the prescription lacks decision-making capacity.

Our pain program mission is to empower patients with persistent pain to learn about their bodies and pain conditions and learn strategies for self-management. Various education modules, like COPE (Coping with and Overcoming Pain Effectively) assist individuals in understanding the mind-body connections in how our bodies feel pain. The goal is to learn techniques to improve management of pain in conjunction with medical treatments. Topics include the effects of pain and stress on the body and how to reduce the negative physical effects; lifestyle habit changes, such as sleep, exercise and nutrition, to reduce pain flares; and developing different coping strategies and behavioral skills to improve functioning in daily life and to enhance a sense of control over pain.

Current recommendations for screening mammography are annually for women 40 years and older who have no breast-related symptoms or 10 years before the age of a first degree relative diagnosed with breast cancer. For example if your sister or mother were diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 45, you would begin screening mammograms at the age of 35. Several initiatives have been implemented to facilitate scheduling of screening mammograms. Eligible women with a primary care provider may schedule their own mammograms without a referral by calling 433-2778, options #8 then #5. Appointments may also be scheduled simply by coming by the front desk of the Women’s Imaging Center during clinic hours. Your mammogram will be interpreted by a Board-Certified Radiologist and results will be sent to you in the mail and will be available to your primary care provider. If further imaging or proceedures are neccessary the Women's Imaging Center will call you for further scheduling and consultation.
