The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) ends on Dec. 31, 2018. Beginning in 2019, new retiree dental coverage will be available through the U.S. Office of Personnel Management's Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP). If you're eligible to enroll in a FEDVIP dental plan, you must enroll in FEDVIP during the Federal Benefits Open Season, which runs from Nov. 12 to Dec. 10, 2018. Your dental coverage will begin on Jan. 1, 2019. When you enroll, you'll make a choice among 15 plans from 10 different dental carriers. You will get to choose among three types of networks.
