All Veterans Eligible for VA Dental Coverage

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.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/04/14/all-veterans-eligible-for-va-dental-coverage/

 

VA is partnering with Delta Dental and MetLife to allow eligible Veterans, plus family members enrolled in(CHAMPVA), to purchase affordable dental insurance now. There are no eligibility limitations based on service-connected disability rating or enrollment priority assignment. Complete an application on-line through either Delta Dental: www.deltadentalvadip.org, or

MetLife: www.metlife.com/vadip

Please support this important initiative by actively going out and bringing at least one veteran to our organization. The simple truth is that if EACH ONE actually REACHes ONE - together, we will have helped create a voice in Washington which cannot be ignored by our legislators! We thank you in advance for understanding

and aiding this important mission.
