  2. 2. Tricare chooses Metlife not United Concordia for dental coverageThe U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) upheld a decision to award a $3.1 billion Tricare dentalplan contract to a different insurer, its first change in 15 years. Tricare Management Activity agency at theU.S. Department of Defense decided to give New York, N.Y.-based Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. a $3.1billion dental plan contract rather than United Concordia Cos., based in Harrisburg, Pa. Tricare managers de-cided that the MetLife provider network suited the military insurance program better than United Concordia’snetwork, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported. United Concordia, a division of Pittsburgh, Pa.-based High-mark, was the Tricare dental program provider for 15 years.Effective May 1, 2012, MetLife will become the dental carrier for the TDP. MetLife will begin providing den-tal coverage to over 2 million family members of uniformed service active duty personnel, members of theSelected Reserve and Individual Ready Reserve, their eligible family members, and Survivors.Beneficiaries will have access to MetLifes network with over 161,000 dentist access points, and this numbercontinues to grow. Additional information about the contract is available at andbenefit updates are available at NOTE that the change to MetLife is for the TDP program only. The Active Duty Dental Programwill still be administered by United Concordia®. Changes to the TDP will include enhanced dental coverageat a lower premium share than before. MetLife will distribute program information, provider network detailsbeginning in first quarter 2012. Highlights to the benefits and enhancements are listed below:· Coverage of posterior resin (tooth colored/white) fillings· Increase in the annual maximum to $1,300 per enrollee (formerly this was $1,200· Increase in the lifetime orthodontic maximum to $1,750· $1,200 per year for services related to dental treatment due to an accident as de- fined in the TDP handbook· No cost shares for scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) for diabetics· Coverage of an additional (3rd) cleaning for women during pregnancy· Expansion of the survivor benefits to surviving spouse and child(ren)If you would like to check if your dentist is already part of the MetLife network,please click Find a Dentist on the right and search for a DPPO provider. If the den-tist is not a member, dentists can easily request an application on our website fordentists, May 1, 2012MetLife will become the dental carrier for the Tricare Dental Plan.MetLife and United Concordia, the current TDP contractor, are working together to complete the contracttransition activities for MetLife’s start on May 1, 2012. TDP claims with a date of service prior to May 1,2012 will continue to be processed by United Concordia until April 30, 2013. All TDP claims with a date ofservice on or after May 1, 2012 will be submitted to MetLife. Please make note of these important dates toensure timely processing of your TDP claims. The new TDP contract that MetLife will be administering isnot to be confused with the separate TRICARE dental contract that covers eligible uniformed service mem-bers. The Active Duty Dental Program (ADDP) will continue to be administered by United Concordia. Met-Life is looking forward to the opportunity to provide quality dental coverage and oral health educational pro-grams to the more than 2 million TDP beneficiaries, which include the family members of all active duty uni- Page 2 TF SIX SHOOTERS 6-6 CAV
