Health Services


The mission of the 61st Medical Squadron Pharmacy is to meet the professional requirements of the clinic for pharmaceuticals and, in that endeavor, provide compassionate and courteous care to all beneficiaries.

We proudly serve active duty service members, their family members and dependents, and over 200,000 retirees throughout the South Bay beach communities and greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. 

Important Notes

All off-base prescriptions will be ready the duty day following the day they are dropped off or received at the pharmacy (medications for acute needs, such as pain medications or antibiotics, may be exempt).

Civilian providers may send us an electronic prescription (E-Rx) for any medication by sending them to “DOD LOS ANGELES E-PHCY” (ZIP code 90245). Call-in refills will be ready for pickup in two duty days after 8:00 a.m.

Our busiest hours (to avoid) are from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tuesday and Friday.  We are least busy Monday mornings.

TRICARE Formulary Search Tool

Use the TRICARE Formulary Search Tool to look-up your drug. A search can tell you:

  • Formulary status (generic drug, brand-name drug, non-formulary drug, non-covered drug)
  • Where the prescription can be filled
  • Copayments and limitations, such as prior authorization
  • Coverage review requirements and forms
  • Alternative medications, including costs

To start your search, you’ll need to put in the brand name or generic name of the drug and then select the strength prescribed, as well as your gender and age.
