The Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) is a separate and supplemental plan to the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program. It provides dental and vision coverage through a variety of insurers.
The Dental and Vision programs are separate from each other, and you must enroll for each plan separately (if you are interested) at www.benefeds.com
This site is also the primary source of information about the programs and costs.
New employees eligible for coverage have sixty (60) calendar days from their appointment with the NPS to enroll in FEDVIP at www.benefeds.com
Every year in November, Federal employees have the opportunity to change, cancel or enroll in different plans during the FEDVIP Open Season, with the changes being effective in January. You must make these changes at www.benefeds.com
Changes for Qualifying Life Events
Under certain circumstances, you can enroll, make changes, or cancel FEDVIP programs outside of Open Season.
