Do you know your box number?

VA in Manila will send it to your door via 2go.

I tried having Tricare (Express Scripts) mail medications to me to the FPO address, but after they ran me all over the place because I had foreign prescriptions (which they didn't like),  they finally said they won't mail to overseas addresses (even though it is technically a US address). If anybody has been successful at having Tricare send meds, I would appreciate it if you can tell us how you did it. It seems that the VA has different policies than those espoused by Tricare because I know several who get their VA meds through RAO.

I get meds from Express Scripts through my RAO mailbox.  The key is to have a US licensed physician who has access to Express Scripts to prescribe them for you.

So who is your doctor and what is his specialty? Contact info would be good.

Rao is closed. Mostly volunteers there. 
Va will send to your physical address via Air-21

VA Manila is Air-21 to physical address.

If your using express scripts to the RAO psc 517 xxxxx etc. You would need to ask them if the Embassy is still passing down mail to the Cebu RAO.

Then find someone from the Cebu RAO to let you get whatever mail they have.
