Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP)

Go to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) web site to learn more about this new Federal employee benefit. You may view and print FEDVIP plan brochures from this web site. There are 4 national dental providers, 3 regional dental providers, and 3 national vision providers.

FEDVIP is available to:

  • Federal employees who are eligible for Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) coverage, whether or not they are enrolled in FEHB.
  • Federal annuitants (retirees).

Eligible employees and annuitants may choose to enroll in either a dental or a vision plan, or both.

Enrollment is offered for self-only, self plus one, or self and family coverage, with corresponding premiums.

Premiums for FEDVIP:

  • Are paid entirely by the enrollee; there is no government contribution.
  • Are withheld from salary on a pre-tax basis, lowering taxable income (employees only).

There are no enrollment limitations based on pre-existing conditions.

Be sure to review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on OPM's Dental Vision website!

If you choose to enroll in a dental and/or vision program, your FEDVIP enrollment must be processed through the secure portal. If you do not have access to a computer, you may enroll by calling 1-877-888-FEDS (1-877-888-3337), TTY number 1-877-889-5680.

FEDVIP enrollments are NOT processed through the NFC Employee Personal Page. There is no enrollment form.
