Medication Disposal

MedSafe is a disposal system for unused and expired medications. The system prevents

pharmaceuticals from circulating into community water supplies.


The MedSafe receptacle is located in the IACH Outpatient Pharmacy lobby and available for use Monday - Friday, 7:30 am - 6 pm; and Saturday, 10 am - 2 pm. Please do not place needles, medical waste, batteries, hazardous materials, inhalers, nor illegal drugs in this receptacle.


Pharmacy Formulary

A formulary is a list of prescription drugs, both generic and brand name, used by prescribers to identify drugs that are currently authorized and available. A committee of providers and pharmacists maintain and update the formulary quarterly.


Patients and providers can view the Fort Riley local formulary here to determine if a medication is on the local formulary. If not, a non-formulary drug request should be submitted. If the provider can establish medical necessity, and the non-formulary drug request is approved, the pharmacy will order the medication and contact the beneficiary.


For information about the TRICARE Formulary or medications covered, visit the Defense Health Agency web site. A search tool for the TRICARE Formulary is available at the Express-Scripts web site.

About the Pharmacy Team

Irwin Army Community Hospital’s Department of Pharmacy is made up of a team of dedicated healthcare workers composed of Registered Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Administrative and Supply Management personnel, and Red Cross volunteers. This cohesive team is dispersed throughout IACH’s patient care areas rendering pharmaceutical services to both inpatient and ambulatory patients.


IACH’s pharmacy has a broad array of available pharmaceuticals called a formulary. Our formulary is routinely reviewed and updated to add and remove drugs so as to better serve our patients for their treatment needs. If you have a special medication need that is not covered by the formulary, please inquire about your available options.


IACH Pharmacy is focused on patient safety, working with patients for improved health and well-being through information and education. Your pharmacy staff’s main role is to provide information about your medications, including:


  • the purpose of your prescription
  • making sure you know how to take or use your medication
  • explaining common side effects


The pharmacy team is dedicated to work with you to ensure your best possible health.
