The highly interactive website, http://www.MilitaryKidsConnect.org, was created by psychologists at DOD’s Na- tional Center for Telehealth and Technology. It helps children of deployed parents cope with the stress, changing responsibilities, and concern for the safety of their parents. The center, known as T2, developed the website with informative videos, educational tools, and engaging games and activities for three age groups: 6 to 8, 9 to 12 and 13 to 17. The site also features monitored online social network fo- rums for the groups to safely share their experiences with deployments. Mili- taryKidsConnect.org provides a safe and engaging way to help military youth with the day-to-day challenges of deployment, and may even help enhance family resilience and support for the deployed Service member.

  3. 3. New TRICARE Dental Contract Starts May 1 The TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) announced the new TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) contract for active duty family members, members of the Selected Reserve and Individual Ready Reserve and their eligible family members, and survivors will begin on May 1, 2012. TDP is only for those residing in CONUS. TDP will now be man- aged by Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Inc. (MetLife) instead of United Concordia. United Concordia will still manage the Active Duty Dental Program. Beneficiaries need to know this new contract change will impact them in several ways. The cost of the TDP premi- ums will decrease. Single plans will now cost $10.30 instead of $12.69. Family plans will now cost $30.89 rather than $31.72. There will also be improvements to the benefit. These include:  New benefits:  Composite resin (white) fillings on posterior teeth  Dental accident with a $1,200 annual maximum  No cost shares for scaling and root planning for diabetics  Third cleaning during pregnancy  Enhanced benefits:  Increase annual maximum for $1,200 to $1,300  Increase of lifetime orthodontics maximum from $1,500 to $1,700 MetLife’s website is www.metlife.com/tricare.

Affected beneficiaries will receive letters from MetLife outlining the re-enrollment process. (Courtesy National Military Family Association) A New Tool for Protecting the Military Community Officials from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the Department of Defense, and the Federal Trade Commission announced the development of a database to combat con- sumer financial frauds directed at service members, veterans, and their families. The Repeat Offenders Against Military (ROAM) Database will track completed enforcement actions against companies and individuals who repeatedly scam military personnel. One of the missions of the CFPB, specifically, of the Office of Service member Affairs – is to coordinate with other federal and state agencies to improve consumer protection for the military community. ROAM will do just that. With agencies across the country reporting scams in their neighborhoods, CFPB will be better equipped to investigate and stop frauds that cross state lines. Far-reaching frauds illustrate the clear need for this database. New York’s Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, discovered a company outside the Army post at Fort Drum, New York that was selling electronics to soldiers at wildly inflated prices and locking them into high-interest contracts. He later found that various related companies operated storefronts near other military installations in California, Tennessee, Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, and overseas. If ROAM had been available, it might have prevented that scam from spreading and saved service members thousands of dollars. ROAM is the first database of its kind. Until now, there has been no central mechanism for officials to run a quick search for actions taken by various federal, state and local law enforcers against those who target the military. The Federal Trade Commission operates Military Sentinel, which is an invaluable database of consumer complaints from the military community, but it does not report on completed enforcement actions. ROAM will have information on formal actions against perpetrators of financial schemes targeting the military. Law enforcement officials across the country, including state Attorneys General, United States Attorneys, local officials, and Judge Advocates (JAGs), will be able to contribute to and search the database. Anyone can send information about formal actions to ROAMData- base@cfpb.gov. Law enforcement officials can send an email to CFPB to request access to the database. ROAM goes live in early February.
