Veterans Dental Eligibility:http://www.va.gov/health/services/dental/

VA implemented a comprehensive national VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) to give enrolled Veterans and beneficiaries the opportunity to purchase dental insurance through Delta Dental and MetLife at a reduced cost. Participation is voluntary. Purchasing a dental plan does not affect Veterans’ eligibility for VA dental services and treatment.

Returning Service members (OEF/OIF/OND) 
Eligibility for VA dental benefits is based on very specific guidelines and differs significantly from eligibility requirements for medical care. Combat Veterans may be authorized dental treatment as reasonably necessary for the one-time correction of dental conditions if:

  • They served on active duty and were discharged or released from active duty under conditions other than dishonorable from a period of service not less than 90 days and 
  • The certificate of discharge or release does not bear a certification that the Veteran was provided, within the 90-day period before the date of such discharge or release, a complete dental examination 
  • Appropriate dental service and treatment indicated by the examination to be needed and 
  • Application for VA dental treatment is made within 180 days of discharge or release under conditions other than dishonorable)

If you are a Veteran who has recently served (e.g. OEF/OIF/OND), you may be entitled to a one-time course of free dental care, but you must apply for dental care within 180 days of your discharge (under conditions other than dishonorable) from a period of active duty of 90 days or more. 

Additional Information  
Additional information is available at the nearest VA medical facility. Veterans can also call VA toll-free at 877-222-VETS (8387).

I just wanted to say thank you for your rapid response to my inquiry and my client’s need for a bedside commode. This bedside commode was dreadfully needed as an intervention to reduce falls with my client.
