I am posting this as I was introduced to this new coverage from a VA rep. Otherwise I don't think I would have heard about it. Hope it helps someone now. I'm signing up for VADIP for my wife who is a CHAMPVA bene. It's actually pretty low cost for full coverage. Please pull up both plans side by side and find out what your needs are and which one works best for you.
VA Dental Insurance Program(VADIP)
VA is implementing a comprehensive national VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) to give enrolled Veterans and CHAMPVA 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. VADIP opens November 15 for the purchasing of plans, with coverage beginning January 1, 2014.
Covered services include diagnostic, preventative, surgical, emergency and endodontic/restorative treatment. Delta Dental and MetLife are offering multiple plans. Each participant pays the fixed monthly premiums for coverage and any copayments required, depending on the type of plan selected.
Dependents of Veterans, except those eligible under CHAMPVA, are not authorized to participate in VADIP. Those individuals may be eligible for separate dental insurance coverage offered by these carriers.
For more information about VADIP, explore our Fact Sheet or our Frequently Asked Questions brochure.

Thanks for posting. I wonder when the VA is going to inform us of this plan.
