VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP)

The VA's new Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) offers enrolled Veterans and beneficiaries of VA's Civilian Health and Medical Program (CHAMPVA) dental insurance at a reduced cost.

Offered through Delta Dental and MetLife, the VADIP is a three-year pilot program to determine the feasibility of providing a premium-based insurance plan to eligible individuals. Established by Public Law 111-163, Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act of 2010, Veterans enrolled in VA healthcare and CHAMPVA beneficiaries are eligible to participate. Participation does not affect the benefits of Veterans currently receiving VA dental services and treatment. Dependents of Veterans are not covered under the plan but may get separate coverage by the same carriers.

The program was initiated Nov. 15. Individuals wishing to participate may apply online, by phone, or by mail. Coverage begins Jan. 1, 2014.
