Pre-treatment estimate

Before you get care, ask your provider to send an itemized treatment plan to GEHA. We will estimate how services will be covered and provide your financial obligations.

Coverage with your FEHB medical plan

If you have an FEHB medical plan with dental coverage, your medical plan will be considered the primary payor for some preventive, restorative and other services before any benefits are paid by any FEDVIP dental plan. This includes GEHA’s FEDVIP plan.

Good news though! When enrolled in both a GEHA FEHB medical plan with dental coverage and a GEHA FEDVIP dental plan like your Standard plan, your provider only needs to file one claim. You are one and done, which makes it easy and speeds up claim processing. No further action is required by you or your provider.
