Beginning on May 1, 2017, administration of the TRICARE Dental Program will shift from MetLife to United Concordia. Beneficiaries do not need to take any actions to continue their coverage. Several improvements to the TDP include: (1) the annual maximum TDP will pay will increase from $1,300 to $1,500; (2) the TDP will consider sealants a free and preventive treatment; (3) the auto-enrollment age for family members will lower from age four to one; and (4) for most beneficiaries, the monthly premium rate will decrease. Those currently enrolled may need to find a new dental provider. To find participating dentists, visit the United Concordia TRICARE website.
