TRICARE Retiree Dental Program Open for Enrollment
The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) offers comprehensive dental coverage. It is available to retired active duty service members and their families, retired National Guard and Reserve members and their families, Medal of Honor recipients, their family and survivors. TRDP is currently open for enrollment.
Eligible beneficiaries can enroll online through the Beneficiary Web Enrollment (BWE) website. Alternatively, you can print, complete, and mail the enrollment application.
Federal law requires that TRDP premiums be deducted automatically through a monthly allotment from retirement pay. Electronic funds transfer (EFT) is available only to those beneficiaries who do not receive retired pay or whose retired pay is insufficient to cover the allotment amount. For those eligible to pay monthly premiums by EFT, visit the TRDP website to download the EFT authorization form.
There is a 12-month commitment for initial enrollments. After a year, beneficiaries can decide to continue on a month to month basis as long as they haven’t added additional family members to the plan. If a beneficiary and spouse are already enrolled, adding a child or any other family member resets the 12-month period.
Delta Dental of California manages the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program. Beneficiaries can register at the TRDP website to access several online features such as tracking claims and adding or removing family members.
