The Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) is a voluntary, enrollee-pay-all dental and vision program that offers you the chance to choose your carrier.


FEDVIP is available to eligible federal and U.S. Postal Service (USPS) employees, annuitants, and survivor annuitants, as well as certain retired uniformed service members, active duty family members, and survivors.

You may qualify to participate in FEDVIP as part of more than one eligibility group; however, you can only enroll under one group. 

Most retirees are eligible for dental coverage. Most retirees and active duty family members are eligible for vision coverage, if enrolled in a TRICARE health plan. Active duty uniformed service members are not eligible for dental and vision coverage. Premiums are paid post-tax. Dependent children are covered until age 21 (non-students) or 23 (full-time students).

Federal employees are eligible for dental and vision coverage if they are eligible for the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program (they do not have to be enrolled). Annuitants receiving an immediate annuity are eligible for dental and vision coverage. Premiums are paid pre-tax for employees. Dependent children are covered until age 22.


The enrollment process for the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) is administered by BENEFEDS, a secure, government-authorized online portal. You can enroll during the annual Federal Benefits Open Season, typically held from the second Monday in November to the second Monday in December of each year. You can also enroll outside of Open Season if you are newly eligible or experience a qualifying life event (QLE) which allows enrollment. Once you enroll in a FEDVIP dental and/or vision plan, your coverage will automatically continue each year.
