Tricare and Trimix

Postby flyingduck2019 » Sat Aug 01, 2020 8:51 am

NOTICE TO VETERANS: There has been a change to the formulary when it comes to Trimix. In the past, I have ordered my trimix from a compounding pharmacy twice and got it with no problems and Tricare paid.
I ordered a new batch last week and it was refused by tricare because two of the ingredients are no longer on their list of medications they will cover.
So, I have to see if I can switch from Trimix to bimix or quadmix. I will see my URO tuesday and will discuss the situation with her.

Which 2 ingredients are off the list? You might be down to mono-mix, as in alprostadil (PGE-1).

I hope I have these spelled right. They are not any of the 3 main juices.
Here they are: Sodium Metabisulsite powder and Bacteaiost water.

Beats the hell out of me.

Wow, that's strange. Those aren't even drugs. The one is the sterile water with ingredients to prevent bacteria growth and the other is a preservative. I can't imagine why it would get rejected for those ingredients.

It's a mystery to me as well. I guess it all depends on who you talk to at the time rather than having a guide written in stone.

I will see my URO tuesday to get my testostrone injection and we will discuss the matter. I am told by Tricare that my URO can call a certain phone number at Tricare and request an "override approval" and if approved, Tricare will pay for the trimix. Given the benefits of the juice, going through the hassled every 6 to 8 months is worth the savings I get in cost.

The other option would be to find another juice that will work. I would prefer the quadmix and just drop my dose. I started at 20 units so if the quadmix is the strongest I could probably drop the dose to 5-10 units and get the same results. I will just have to talk to my URO and see what she advises. At age 73, if push comes to shove I will see if I can go with a implant.

Well Edex and it's competitor appear to be on your approved list and at a good price, if you tolerate alprostadil well.

Thanks for the information. I just filed a appeals form with the insurance and explaining they had already approved two orders for the same juice, so why are they denying my last order? I also explained that the two ingredients they denied are most probably part of bi, tri and quadmix. I mean, how much of the water and powder could be in a 10ml order? Surely, the two can't be that expensive, maybe $2 at most?

I will post when i get a response from the insurance.
