Federal Employee Program (FEP) Requirements - Dental

Policy Number: DP-F-001

Last Updated: Sept. 15, 2022

General FEHB overview

Federal employees who are enrolled in a medical plan offered through the Federal  

Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHB) may have a plan that includes dental benefits. When this is the case, file your dental claim to the FEHB carrier first.* This coverage is primary to any coverage the patient has through a supplemental Federal Employee Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) dental plan (see FEDVIP plan available to members in Nebraska, Home - Blue Cross and Blue Shield's Federal Employee Program (fepblue.org))

*Other coordination-of-benefits rules may apply if the federal employee or a covered family member has other non-FEDVIP medical and/or dental coverage. Follow your normal procedures for verifying which group or individual dental plan is primary in these situations.
