TRDP transition to FEDVIP

Dental coverage under the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) will end on December 31, 2018. However, as directed in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017, retired uniformed services members and their families, who were eligible for TRDP, will have the opportunity to enroll in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP). You will not automatically be enrolled in FEDVIP. You must take action to have dental coverage in 2019.

If you have already enrolled in a dental plan through FEDVIP, you would have received a FEDVIP enrollment confirmation from BENEFEDS, and you will be receiving information from your new dental plan carrier in January 2019.

If you intended to enroll in a FEDVIP plan before the end of the federal benefits open season on December 10, 2018, but were unable to for reasons beyond your control, visit to review your enrollment options.

Check out the 2018 TRDP Transition tab on this site to learn more about the transition and what resources are available.
