Dental insurance is available to retired members of the Armed Service who are eligible for retired pay, as well as their spouses and children up to age 21. Most common dental services are covered by the program and dental care generally does not need to be pre-approved.
Dental insurance for retired military personnel is available through the provider TRICARE, an associate of Delta Dental. TRICARE is a dental PPO, meaning covered individuals can see any dentist they choose. However, there are advantages to seeing dentists who are on the Delta Select provider network. This includes having all claims paperwork handled by the dental office.
