While dental care can be expensive, you can help cover the cost of your child’s dental care and treatment with a TRICARE dental program.
When you or a relative serve your country, you qualify for a program that will help make sure that your children get the quality dental care they need.
If you work hard to serve your country in the armed forces, then your family qualifies for TRICARE dental coverage. A TRICARE dental plan helps those in the armed forces and their families get affordable and quality dental health care.
There are three low-cost TRICARE dental plans:
The cost of TRICARE dental programs includes monthly premiums and cost shares. The exact figure for monthly premiums depends on whether the military sponsor is active duty, selected reserve, or individual ready reserve.
Monthly premiums are fees paid in advance for the following month’s coverage.
Premiums also depend on the type of enrollment you have:
Cost shares are the money you would pay for each type of dental treatment provided. Cost shares are determined by the dental treatment provided, the sponsor’s pay grade, and the location of the dental facility providing treatment.
