United Concordia is pleased to begin administration of the TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) on May 1, 2017. The TDP is a voluntary dental insurance program offered by the Department of Defense (DoD) through the Defense Health Agency.
The TDP is available to eligible family members of all active duty uniformed services personnel* and to National Guard/Reserve members and/or their families.
Note that the TDP has two geographical areas of service:
- Continental United States (CONUS) which includes all US states and territories
- Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS)
*The uniformed services include the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS).
