As you've probably already heard, on December 31, 2018 the Defense Health Agency's TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) will end. Don't worry! You can enroll in dental coverage for next year under the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP). Retired uniformed service members and their families who were eligible for TRDP will be eligible for FEDVIP dental coverage, effective January 1, 2019.
Military retirees who want dental coverage in 2019 must pick one of the FEDVIP plans during open enrollment, Nov. 12 to Dec. 10, or risk going without next year.
You will not be automatically enrolled in a FEDVIP plan for 2019. You must enroll during the Federal Benefits Open Season.
