TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) Ending

What’s happening? The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) will end on December 31, 2018. TRDP enrollees will have an opportunity to enroll in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), with coverage effective January 1, 2019. FEDVIP offers benefits similar to the TRDP and a choice of carriers and plan options. You’ll have the ability to select from a number of nationwide/international and regional dental carriers, including Delta Dental. Delta Dental has proudly served the TRDP military retiree community for the last 20 years. When do I need to take action? To avoid any disruption in coverage, you’ll need to select a new plan during the Federal Benefits Open Season, which runs from November 12, 2018, through December 10, 2018, for coverage effective January 1, 2019. There is nothing you need to do to disenroll from the TRDP, as that will happen automatically at year’s end. Why choose a Delta Dental FEDVIP plan? We make it easy to take care of your oral health with great benefits, affordable rates, and a large network of dentists nationwide. The same Delta Dental team you have known and trusted for your TRDP dental coverage also supports our FEDVIP plans. In FEDVIP, Delta Dental offers a choice between two great plans to meet your needs. • The Standard Plan option offers quality care at a low premium and a per person in-network maximum of $1,500. • The High Plan option offers greater coverage and an increased per person in-network maximum of $30,000. • The odds are your dentist is already in-network!
