All veterans eligible for VA dental coverage

dental careFor the first time in history, the U.S. government has authorized a national dental insurance program for veterans enrolled in Veterans Affairs health care and individuals enrolled in VA’s CHAMPVA program.

 

Premium rates will vary depending on your geographic region and the plan option you select. There are three options that are available: basic, enhanced and comprehensive. These plans range from about $8 for the basic up to about $27 for comprehensive.

In the Tippecanoe County area there are many dentists who have signed up for this program. Veterans will not be getting dental care done by the VA but veterans must be signed up with the VA for health care to be eligible for the dental insurance plan.

As stated above, this is the first time that the VA has actually assisted veterans with dental care except for those veterans rated at 100 percent service-connected, have a service-connected disability for a dental injury, or on the VA Voc-Rehab program.

More information can be found by going to Delta Dental at deltadentalvadip.org. If you don’t have access to a computer, you can visit the VA Clinic at Indiana Veterans’ Home or stop by our office at 629 N. Sixth St. in Lafayette.

  1. As a disabled veteran I often wonder what if? What if all the active duty members just said hell no we won’t fight your dirty little wars until you fully fund the VA and cover all the veterans 100%? We give 100% when we are in uniform working the wild hours in the wild places doing whatever they ask of us to do. So it’s time for the country to give that much support to us when we come back from their oil wars and wars of political domination with disabling injuries, exposed to who knows what kind of chemical hazards and not able to perform the jobs as we were able to before or not at all. I have to force my hands to stop all the twitching just to type this. Dental care is part of health care, they go hand in hand. We shouldn’t have to pay for that. The whole body is affected when you have a infection in your teeth as much as if you had one in your foot. So I ask again, What if?………………………………………….

    • BEWARE. Dental X-Rays emit the highest amount of ionizing radiation (CANCER), of all x-rays. The VA does NOT have any accountability of INCOMPETENT & DISHONEST dentists or doctors or administrators. The VA in Iowa City poisoned me with mercury despot their promises that they would NOT use “silver amalgam” filling material. I asked for the tooth colored COMPOSITE material and was assured that that is what I would get. DO NOT TRUST THE VA, and LIVE to see another day. Dr. Kenneth Tennant KTennantDC@Gmail.com

  2. Your right , most U.S. Veterans understand they don’t really get a damn thing from the V.V. that’s worth anything.

  3. Of course as usual I check the links and do not find specific information on the program, nor whether it is available at the facility I use, which is not in Tippecone or such place.

    As always even search on “Veterans Affairs’ brings up a list of deadends, telling me what I already know and have known for a decade or more. This is just PR for the public, not most veterans.

    • Did you try http //deltadentalvadip.org/ ? I was just at that site, and it does have some info. The program seems to be managed by Delta Dental (in California), but uses local dentists willing to participate. It basically works like any other insurance. It appears to be a little less expensive than non VA dental plans, and may offer a wider range of benefits depending on the plan you select.
