Delta Dental is the dental insurance contractor offered through TRICARE insurance and does not offer plan choices, as of 2015. Instead, Delta Dental offers one plan with comprehensive coverage.
You may enroll in the Dental Delta TRICARE plan either online or by mail. If you choose to enroll in the plan online, you need to visit the website and select the Dental tab to enroll. If you choose to sign up by mail, you need to send a completed enrollment form and premium payment to the Delta Dental main office location. The enrollment form and address can be found at the TRICARE website.
The plan coverage includes exams, cleanings, fluorides, sealants, as well as x-rays ,fillings, root canals, gum surgery, oral surgery and extractions, crowns and dentures, and orthodontics. This voluntary plan covers retirees, Medal of Honor recipients, survivors and their family members.
Note that enrolling online is the most efficient way to get covered faster, as of 2015. You must enroll for 12 consecutive months and after that, you can sign up for month-to-month. If you are needing to cancel your enrollment, you may do so at any time within the first 30 days, so long as you did not use any services covered under the plan.
