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.
Limitations and exclusions – This plan has certain limits on dental coverage in order to keep plan rates affordable for you and your dependents. A complete list of plan limitations and exclusions may be found in the Plan Brochure.
