Benefit Fact Sheet



The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) Basic and Enhanced plans offer comprehensive, cost-effective dental coverage for retired Service members and their eligible Family members, for unmarried surviving Spouses and Children, and for other select individuals. The TRDP is administered by the Federal Government Programs division of Delta Dental of California under contract with the U.S. Defense Today.

Beginning in January 2016, DFAS will provide IRS Form 1095-C to all U.S. military members, and IRS Form 1095-B to all Retirees, Annuitants, former Spouses and all other individuals having TRICARE coverage during all or any portion of tax year 2015. An IRS Form 1095 documents you (and your Family members, if applicable) have the minimum essential coverage. These forms will document the information that DFAS will provide to the IRS on yourself and your authorized Family members. The forms will be required to be reported with your 2015 federal tax return. DFAS will provide you with IRS Form 1095 series forms no later than 31 January 2016.




Army Reserve Soldiers on drill status and their Family members are not eligible for the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program. The program is intended for retired Soldiers and their dependents. However, Army Reserve Soldiers on active duty with eligible Family members may participate in the TRICARE Dental Program. When not on active duty Army Reserve Soldiers are eligible for TRICARE dental coverage under a special program for the Reserve Component.
