Upgrade Your Basic Coverage
Get More with the Enhanced Program
The Enhanced TRDP is designed to meet more of your individual needs in the most affordable way possible. When you upgrade your coverage from the Basic to the Enhanced program, there is no waiting period for major services such as cast crowns, onlays, bridges, full and partial dentures, dental implant services and braces. You’ll also get:
- A second cleaning within a 12-month period (and a third cleaning within a 12-month period if you’ve been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes)
- Additional diagnostic and preventive services not covered under the Basic program
- Coverage for composite (tooth-colored) fillings on your back teeth
- Dental accident coverage
- Emergency services when traveling overseas
Once your Enhanced program coverage takes effect, you’ll receive an increase in your annual maximum, a separate dental accident coverage maximum, and a lifetime orthodontic maximum. If you're living overseas and you upgrade your coverage from the Basic program to the Enhanced program, you'll no longer have to travel to the original TRDP service area to get your dental care—it will be available to you wherever are.
