    Not every veteran is eligible for VA Dental care. VA does offer dental insurance...

    Dental for Veterans - Eligibility and Benefits

    VA offers comprehensive dental care benefits to specific qualifying Veterans. What VA dental care benefits do I qualify for? If eligible but not yet enrolled in VA health care, you can apply online using the Apply for Health Care Benefits webpage. If not eligible, Veterans enrolled in VA health care can purchase dental insurance at a reduced cost through the VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP). Read More Here

    VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP)

    You may be eligible for VADIP if you meet one of these requirements. One of these must be true: You’re a Veteran enrolled in VA health care, or You’re the current or surviving spouse or dependent child of a Veteran or service member. You’re enrolled in the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the VA (CHAMPVA). Note: Insurance carriers may offer separate coverage options for dependents who aren’t CHAMPVA beneficiaries. VADIP provides coverage throughout the United States and its territories, including Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

    I suggest getting ChampVA.  I believe there is no charge for ChampVA but they do have a small deductible.  They also require Medicare "B," which is the primary insurance, if you are eligible.  If not, the spouse is eligible to receive care at the VAMC and they seem to treat spouses better than vets.  At least that's been our experience.  ChampVA is very slow w/reimbursement.  As for the dental, it's probably just like most dental insurance available to the public.  jm

    Doubt it is anything more than any dental insurance.  Dental insurances seem to be, not actually an insurance that pays the bill, but a group of Dentists sharing customers.

    As for CHAMPVA, I would not recommend signing up for it if you have other insurance unless the other insurance is also HMO type.  If you are qualified for Medicare, you will get much better care just paying part B and picking your physicians.  You will then be able to see specialists before too late and you are dying. 

    My wife could not get an appointment with a neurologist and dyed in status epilepticus because a cardiologist reduced her Keppra without getting an EEG telemetry when she was having a history of falls that were probably colonic seizures though one was probably a tonic colonic seizure that stressed her heart and put in care of the wrong specialist. 

    3 days after the cardiologist's reduction of her seizure medication she died in a seizure that ended in her death before the ambulance could get to the rehab center she had been sent to too early.  Again because of CHAMPVA profiting off non payments so from inpatient care to rehab care is too quick.  Get real health insurance, not cheap HMO insurance if you want to live.
