The DoD awarded United Concordia Companies, Inc. a five year contract worth over $600 M contract to provide dental care for active duty US military members. The contract provides special dental services to US military who have access to a dental clinic on their base, or general services to those who do not. The contract also requires the company to track the dental health of the members to make sure that they meet deployment requirements. The US Military has over the last thirty years moved to out sourcing a great deal of their medical care for retirees, dependents and members due to the growth in requirements and cost.
