Dental and Vision coverage for retirees and active duty

If you desire coverage for 2019 or presently have coverage, YOU MUST re-enroll between Nov 12 and Dec 10 2018.
Present coverage DOES NOT carry over to 2019:https://tricare.benefeds.com/InfoPor...EN10402_button

Yep, and as presently structured, you wouldn't be able to sign up for the new program until 2019's open season. This is extremely important information for retirees.

I have full dental with VA. So to get my spouse covered on a FEDVIP dental plan, its my understanding I have to take it as well. Can someone confirm that here if that is in fact the case. Thanks

I can't say for certain, but that is my understanding also, since the retired military member is the sponsor. That would be an excellent question for the upcoming webinar Nov 14 or 15, I received conflicting dates in emails.

I can take a FEDVIP dental plan as "me + one" with no waiting period as have VA dental. Now the "plus one" (spouse) has not been on a dental plan. So if she gets her own private plan (nun-TC) she has a waiting period. So may be advantageou$ to take the FEDVIP for two as she needs some pricy dental work soon..ie Crowns/root canals.
Still checkin.

100% SC or close. And I did get the answer to my question. If sponsor covered by VA dental, spouse is eligible for FEDVIP on her own and no waiting period. She has already enrolled today.

Signing up for your selected plan is better done on the benefeds website. I phoned this afternoon, was on hold for 37 minutes, when a man got on the line he was knowledgeable and efficient in answering all my questions.

I used the Benefeds website to sign up for a new 2019 Dental Plan. Quite a few questions to answer so they could "pegme" properly. The acronyms in the questions were a bit confusing,but I muddled though it. I was quite pleased that there is NO waiting period since I had Delta Dental of CA in 2018. Even better was the automatic payments will be taken from my retirement pay without any manipulation on my part. (Well, I guess gov'ment is quick to spend my money for me!)

Some day the 'world' of Healthcare will hopefully include Dental & Vision Care into the whole healthcare concept.


Never understood how Dental/Vision got carved out of healthcare to be stand alone issues....Both play an important part in ones overall health and can have a huge negative affect on ones health


Actually I do understand/comprehend why-----$$$$$$$$$$$$$


Not just VA...it's the same across the spectrum of Healthcare


Rant off.

I totally agree! Bad teeth can cause many subsequent ailments and infections; yet insurance companies tout preventative medicine as one of their accomplishments.

I have seen 2 cases where a lady was going to have a "minor" almost brain surgery for trigeminal neuralgia, turned out she needed a root canal, extreme pain for over 2 years. Another dx with chronic bronchitis and she was cured by having her periodontal disease treated.
Many people can't afford it, and look what harm is wreaked on their bodies by bad teeth. I will never understand our health care.

From what I know about it, the VA has awesome eye care and pretty poor dental care.
