This post was sponsored by the MetLife TRICARE Dental Program as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central.
This isn’t the first time you’ve seen or heard me post about MetLife TRICARE Dental Program, and it may not be the last.
Did you learn anything from reading my past posts about MetLife TDP?
Like did you learn that enrollees have access to one of the largest civilian dental networks? – over 250,000 dental locations!
Did you know that your sponsor’s family is not automatically enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Program even though they may have TRICARE medical? You have to sign up! You have to enroll! Dental coverage requires enrollment and it is done easily on-line (www.tricare.mil/bwe), by phone (1-855-638-8371) or by filling out an enrollment form and mailing it to us or faxing (1-855-763-1337)
Did you know that it’s pretty common for children to grind their teeth during sleep? More so than they do during the hours that they are awake. No one knows exactly why children grind their teeth but considerations include improperly aligned teeth and may need a mouth guard or splint prescribed by your dental provider. Grinding of the baby teeth rarely results in problems, thankfully since Owen does this OFTEN. However, teeth grinding can cause jaw pain, headaches, and wear on the teeth. Head here to read my post from last month about the benefits for your kids!
Did you know that premiums are competitively priced, there are no annual deductibles or co-payments, and there are low or no cost-shares on many dental services – including preventive and diagnostic?
Did you know that the TDP has an Accidental Annual Maximum of $1,200 per beneficiary per plan year that can help your sponsor prepare for that unexpected tooth injury? That’s right, that tooth injury that happens at the park, during a sporting event or tripping over that random bump in the floor – the treatment and services may be covered AND this annual maximum is separate from the $1,300 plan annual maximum per beneficiary per plan year. We’ve all been there!
Did you know that the TDP will coordinate with another supplemental dental insurance carrier, but it’s always a good idea to compare other plans with the TDP?
Learning all kinds of stuff today, aren’t we?!
