News from Our Partners: Retired Uniformed Service Members - Take advantage of your FEDVIP enrollment period

 
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is proud to welcome you to the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP).

Sponsored by OPM, FEDVIP is a voluntary, enrollee-pay-all dental and vision insurance program. It replaced the former TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP). In general, retired uniformed service members, their families, and survivors are eligible for FEDVIP dental coverage and, if enrolled in a TRICARE health plan, FEDVIP vision coverage. In addition, family members of active duty uniformed service members who are enrolled in a TRICARE health plan are eligible for FEDVIP vision coverage. Please note: Opportunities to enroll outside of open season are limited.

FEDVIP is popular among the more than 3.5 million people already enrolled in the program, giving the program high marks for quality and value. With 12 dental and 5 vision carriers to choose from, FEDVIP offers great flexibility when selecting the right coverage for you and your family, such as:
 
  • regional dental plans as well as nationwide dental and vision plans with international coverage
  • most plans feature both high and standard options
  • a choice between three enrollment types: self, self plus one, or self and family
The Federal Benefits Open Season is your annual opportunity to enroll in, change, or cancel a FEDVIP dental and/or vision plan. This year, open season runs from November 14 through December 12, 2022, with coverage effective January 1, 2023.

To familiarize yourself with the program, explore BENEFEDS.com/military. BENEFEDS is the secure online portal to enroll in FEDVIP, to research FEDVIP’s current list of carriers and plans, and use the plan comparison tool to view rates, benefits, and coverage information.

During open season, you may view informational webinars or access the Virtual Benefits Fair by visiting BENEFEDS.com/military. The Virtual Benefits Fair is an online health fair that houses 2023 FEDVIP plan information in a single location, allowing military families to browse exhibits, view and download plan brochures, and chat with BENEFEDS and FEDVIP representatives.
