Re: Federal Dental Plans


Open enrollment will commence on October 1, 2018 for 2019. Also, the Tricare Retiree plan which is currently administered by Delta Dental of California will end and members will be given the opportunity to select from the various Federal Dental Plans.

There are numerous plans available. After reviewing them and evaluating the costs, deductibles, copayments and annual maximum benefit, we believe the best value is found in the GEHA/Connection Dental plans. The Aetna and Metlife plans appear to offer good value as well. Some of the other plans can become almost punitive if you require out-of-network specialty care.
