TRICARE Retiree Dental Program

The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program is available to all military retirees
(including gray area retirees) and their eligible family members, unremarried
surviving spouses and their eligible children, as well as MOH recipients and
their eligible immediate family members.  The program covers cleanings, exams,
fillings, root canals, gum surgery, oral surgery and dental accidents on the
first day that coverage becomes effective; after 12 months of being in the
program, it then covers crowns, bridges, partials, braces and dental implants.
(New retirees who enroll within four months after retirement from the Uniformed
Services or transfer to Retired Reserve status are eligible to waive the
12-month waiting period for major services; supporting documentation is

The Enhanced TRDP provides every enrollee an annual maximum of $1,200 per person
($1,000 for Basic Program enrollees), a $1000 annual maximum for dental
accidents and a $1500 lifetime maximum for orthodontics. It is important to note
that the money that the TRDP pays out for preventive and diagnostic services
doesn't count against the annual maximum - those benefits are in addition to the
$1200. Retirees can find more information on the program, as well as enroll
24/7/365, online at http://trdp.org.

TRDP enrollees realize the maximum program savings (an average of 22%) when
seeing a network provider. To find a network provider, as well as utilize the
Consumer Toolkit to print ID cards, view annual maximum information, see if
claims have been paid and sign up for e-mail updates, please visit
