Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to assess the dental treatment needs, dental utilization, and perceived need for dental care of family members of active duty U.S. Army personnel. It also surveys their enrollment in the Active Duty Dependent Dental Insurance Plan ADDDIP and their attitudes toward the plan. Comparing enrollment choice in the voluntary dental insurance plan with assessed treatment needs, the study seeks to determine whether adverse selection into the plan is occurring. By examining such issues, this report seeks to contribute to planning for the future and to evaluating the impact of Army and DoD policies and programs as they are implemented. emk
