    Tricare and Dentist?

    Advertisements
    I donít know where this should go but I will post it here because I need immediate response.

    I have a Tricare Prime and I know it cover the doctor and everything. But what do I do if I need to go to the dentist. My filling came out and it hurts I need to get it fixed.

    If someone can help me how and what insurance I can get so I can go to the dentist,

    Thank you in advance.

    You have to pay for United Concordia and get a dentist that takes them. The dentist isnt a tricare thing.

    You can sign up online at this website. If you do it before the 20th your coverage will start May 1st if I remember correctly

    we just signed up for dental yesterday. they said that it would take two weeks for our card to arrive.
    and if you don't mind me asking how bad is the tooth that the filling came out of...and how fare along are you? some places msy opt to wait depending on far along you are in your pegnancy. not that it is not possible to get a filling during that time. it isn't some dentists just prefer to wait until after the first trimester, and some may choose not to take an xray, while others may not want to get you numb for the filling.

    The card can arrive before the coverage actually starts. It did when I signed up. So make sure what date coverage starts (it says on the card) before making an appointment.

    Im a little over 6 months pregnant. And the tooth is kinda bad I guess. It bothers me that it came out and when I eat food gets in it and it hurts. And it doesnt bother me not to numb me for it. LOL

    One other question.

    Does DH have to have at least 12 months left in the Navy. DH is getting out in September and I think I read that you are not eligible if the enlisted has less than 12 months is that true?

    This is what I found
    All enrollees must remain enrolled in the TDP for at least 12 months unless the disenrollment request qualifies as an exception. View Disenrolling Before the Initial Enrollment Periods for exceptions.
