Choose Connection Dental Plus for your dependent's dental coverage.

Connection Dental Plus®

GEHA's Connection Dental Plus plan offers year-round enrollment for dependent children who are no longer eligible under their parent's FEDVIP dental plan.

Enrollees of the Connection Dental Plus plan will receive:

  • Dental benefits that provide comprehensive and affordable coverage for preventive dental care services.
  • Year-round enrollment with enrollment eligibility until 26 years old. ENROLL TODAY
  • Worldwide coverage with a large nationwide network.
  • Access to included benefits such as vision, electric toothbrush, teeth whitening, hearing-aid and Life Alert discounts at no additional cost.
