Reserves Dental Benefit

Posted: March 25, 2012 in Uncategorized

National Guard and Reserve members separating from active duty after an activation of 30 days or more in support of a contingency operation, began receiving the same dental care benefits as active duty service members effective Jan. 27, 2012. The TRICARE Active Duty Dental Program (ADDP) provides coverage to these members in the Transition Assistance Management Program (TAMP). ADDP beneficiaries receive active duty dental benefit services as long as the referral and/or authorization requirements are met prior to receipt of care. Authorizations will not be granted for any dental care procedure that cannot be completed within the 180 day TAMP period. Benefits begin the day after a service member is separated from active duty. Family members and dependents are not eligible for ADDP benefits under TAMP, but remain eligible to purchase coverage through the TRICARE Dental Program. Service members receiving benefits under TAMP are ineligible for the TDP until the end of the 180-day transitional benefit period. [Source: NAUS Weekly Update 9 Mar 2012 ++]
