    Premiums
    TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) premiums are determined by the TDP enrollment plan (single or family) and the military status of the sponsor.

    For enrolled active duty family members (ADFMs), the Government assumes 60 percent of the cost of your TDP premium while you pay 40 percent. If the military status of your sponsor changes from active duty to National Guard/Reserve, your premiums will change accordingly.

    Premium Amounts
    Your TDP premium amounts change annually on February 1st.

    The following chart indicates your monthly premium responsibility as an ADFM for enrollment years Feb. 1, 2007 through Jan. 31, 2008 and Feb. 1, 2008 through Jan. 31, 2009.

    Plan Enrollment Year
    Feb. 1, 2007 -
    Jan. 31, 2008 Feb. 1, 2008 -
    Jan. 31, 2009
    Monthly Single Premium (one family member) $11.05 $11.58
    Monthly Family Premium (more than one family member) $27.63 $28.95

    Premiums are paid on a monthly basis. They must be paid in full. There are no circumstances when a partial premium can be paid. If you fail to pay your premiums during the mandatory 12-month enrollment period, the Government will not pay any portion of the premium for the remaining months. United Concordia will collect the full amount - Government and member portions - of any remaining premium due for the 12-month enrollment period from you. Failure to pay the required premiums may result in referral of the account to a collection agency.
