About FEDVIP Dental and FEDVIP Vision Insurance Plans
As of December 2004, federal employees, retirees and their dependents may purchase dental and vision coverage through the Federal Employee Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP). The FEDVIP is an enrollee-pay-all program, which means there is no government contribution.
Premiums for enrolled federal and postal employees are withheld from salary on a pre-tax basis. New hires can enroll within 60 days of their employment date. All FEHB-eligible enrollees can enroll or change their FEDVIP enrollment during the Open Season.
For more information about FEDVIP visit www.opm.gov/insure or consult your agency’s human resources (HR) office.
Other Dental and Vision Plans
In addition to the FEDVIP plans, there are other dental and vision plans available from some of the health plans participating in FEHBP, such as MHBP. You can enroll in many of these plans year-round. These benefits are neither offered nor guaranteed under contract with the FEHB Program, but are made available to all persons who are eligible for FEHBP coverage. You cannot file a FEHB disputed claim about them. The premiums and fees you pay for those services do not count toward FEHB deductibles or catastrophic protection limits.
