Tricare Dental Program Ending: Action Required by Enrolled Veterans

by | Oct 24, 2018 | Because You Served, News

Beginning on January 1, 2019, the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) will be replaced by the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) which offers dental benefits comparable to the TRDP and a choice of ten dental carriers including Delta Dental. Enrollment in the FEDVIP will begin November 12, 2018 and run through December 10, 2018. You must select a FEDVIP dental plan to continue your dental care benefits.

Under the FEDVIP program, there are no waiting periods (except for orthodontics in most plans), and you will receive your full FEDVIP benefits beginning on January 1, 2019 with whichever FEDVIP plan you select during the November/December 2018 open season.

Together, we can prevent any gap in dental coverage for you and your family when the TRDP plan ends. To find more information on FEDVIP please visit
