    Tricare Standard/Metlife Dental Question?

    Advertisements
    I got married on 12/27. Yesterday, DH & I went and enrolled me in DEERS and I got my military ID. (Picture is the worst I have ever taken! but that's anothe story) Since I'm enrolled in DEERS already, I'm automatically enrolled in Tricare Standard I believe? How soon will I be able to use the prescription benefits? I'll need to refill my meds in the middle of January.

    The dental is through MetLife now? How do I go about getting myself and DH enrolled? I know we have to pay a premium each month but that is al I know. Thanks!

    You need to go online and do the dental. Your dh is covered under the military for the dentist and will see the base dentist.

    Thanks! Do you know what website I use or should I just do a Google search?

    your DH now has to use a computer with a CAC card access to enroll you in dental. you get to it by going to Home

    you may have missed the cut off for enrollment for tricare and may not be covered now until FEB 1st. ( cut off is the 20th of the month)
    call tricare to be sure.

    He tried enrolling me in the dental using his CAC card but it wasn't working so he says he is going to go on base and enroll me there. I hate the dentist so that is fine with me!

    I called Tricare and they said that I'm covered.

    Thanks for your help ladies! I appreciate it!
