I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for the MetLife TRICARE Dental Program. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Over the last few months, I’ve written a lot about MetLife TRICARE Dental Program, and this will be my final post for this ambassadorship. I thought it would be good to update you all on changes to 2015 rates and premiums available for military families now that the new year has begun. These changes take place February 1st, as they do annually. Premiums vary based upon the military status (Active Duty, Reserve, etc) and type of enrollment chosen.
In addition to offering dental coverage, the MetLife TRICARE Dental Program is dedicated to educating members about important dental care practices and dental health. Two ways to keep up to date on those are TRICARE’s Facebook page and the Dental HeathMatters Newsletter. Older issues are archived on the website (under the Booklet and Forms tab) and offer a wealth of information and even pages for kids.
The MetLife TRICARE Dental Program is part of the TRICARE Health Plan for military families- but please note that you must enroll separately to receive your dental coverage for your family. And despite the monthly premium, it’s still a super cost effective way for families to have dental coverage. It’s convenient because it’s continuous despite moves, status changes, and whatever else the military throws at you.
So now that we’re in the beginning of a new year, we should all take the time to do a few things. Scheduling our bi-annual dental cleanings for my family is on top of my list. Another thing that I’ve often neglected is going over the various changes to rates and premiums and make sure our budget is still on track. It’s not just the medical items either- I often forget that I’ll be charged for Amazon Prime every January and then I am shocked to see that payment come out of my account!
Please tell me I’m not the only one that forgets about stuff like this!
