Webinar to Discuss Using TRICARE and Other Health Insurance
If you have any health insurance other than TRICARE, it is called "Other Health
Insurance" (i.e., Health insurance you have in addition to TRICARE, such as
Medicare or an employer-sponsored health insurance. TRICARE supplements don't
qualify as "other health insurance.) TRICARE and Military OneSource are
co-hosting a webinar to explain how TRICARE works with OHI on Monday, March 14,
2016 at noon EST.

Save your smile, your health and your money: Enroll in the TRICARE Retiree
Do you see your dentist at least twice a year for regular checkups? If so, you
have an excellent chance of keeping your teeth and gums healthy for a very long
time. Because your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, maintaining
good oral health is important-but even routine dental care can be costly,
sometimes averaging several hundred dollars each year. Fortunately, the TRICARE
Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) can keep you smiling and help you maintain your
overall health, all at an affordable cost.
Here are just some of the many reasons why more than 1.5 million current
enrollees find the TRDP to be such a good value:
* You get your routine annual services-two cleanings (or three with
diagnosed Type 1/Type 2 diabetes), two exams and an x-ray-with no cost share
when you see a TRDP network dentist. And, these services don't count towards
your annual maximum or deductible!
* Seeing a network dentist network helps you save an average of 22% on
your covered dental care. With the TRDP, there is a large nationwide network of
dentists from which to choose. To find a network dentist near you, use the "Find
a Dentist" link at <http://www.trdp.org/> trdp.org.
* Network dentists accept the TRDP allowed fee for covered services, so
there are no surprise costs beyond your expected cost share and deductible,
* Each enrollee gets a generous $1,300 annual maximum, a $1,200 annual
dental accident maximum and a $1,750 lifetime orthodontic maximum.
* The TRDP coordinates benefits with other dental plans, allowing you to
maximize your coverage under both plans.
To enroll in the TRDP, visit <http://www.trdp.org/retirees/enroll.html>
trdp.org and choose the method that works best for you. Enrolling online using
the Quick Link to the Beneficiary Web Enrollment (BWE) site is quickest, or you
can print an application from the TRDP website and mail it to Delta Dental along
with your prepayment amount.
After enrolling, you're encouraged to register for the online Consumer ToolkitR,
where you can verify your program eligibility; review your benefits, coverage
levels and remaining maximums and deductibles; check on the status of your
processed claims and claim payments; and sign up for paperless (electronic)
Explanation of Benefits statements.
Don't wait to improve your oral health and your quality of life. Enroll in the
