    Dental! Help!

    Advertisements
    My husband and I just got married and I am trying to sort through all the things to sign up for and this and that... Anyways. I signed up for tricare and they told me for dental I have to go online to enroll. I was just trying to do so and when I got to the very end, it wanted to charge me $12.69. Does the dental portion cost? What's going on? Please tell me I'm doing this wrong...I really need to go to the dentist!

    You do pay an extra monthly charge for dental. Totally worth it if you need work done though.

    Yes, the dental has a monthly premium.

    The premium is minimal and far less than paying for dental care out of pocket

    I haven't used my Tricare dental though because what they cover is barely anything compared to other companies you can use the prices it's cost just to get my tooth pulled made my jaw drop so I'm waiting till we move and get something better then Tricare. For someone like me who needs a decent amount of work done it's WAY cheaper to go with a different company for dental...

    Still some coverage is better then none at all.

    Yeah you do have to pay monthly for your dental coverage, and you have to see a civilian dentist also. Two cleanings per year are covered unless you're pregnant, I think. It's worth it if you need dental work done though, for sure.

    Darn it! Well thanks! And I'm assuming it is 12.69 a month? And can they take it out of my husbands pay automatically?

    Yeah, it's $12.69 a month. I'm pretty sure it's just withdrawn automatically.

    Yes but the first month you have to pay when you enroll and from there on out it will be an LES deduction.
