Coordination of benefits — As with all FEDVIP plans, dental benefits available from your FEHB carrier will be considered before we calculate benefits paid by GEHA.

Orthodontic services – GEHA does not cover orthodontic services previously started with another carrier, except for High Option members with orthodontics started under TRICARE.

Choosing a dentist — You have the choice of providers. However, for many services, your out-of-pocket costs may be lower when you visit in-network locations. Network providers will not bill you more than the Plan's maximum allowable charge for covered services.

Claim forms — No special claim forms are required. Just send in the itemized bill from your provider.
