Improvements in FEDVIP for Plan Year 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has selected insurance carriers to provide comprehensive, accessible and competitively priced dental and vision coverage through the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Program (FEDVIP), effective January 1, 2021. The contract term is seven (7) years.

The competitive application process allowed OPM to strengthen the FEDVIP program through increased focus on wellness and education. OPM improved quality assurance, financial reporting processes, and enhanced fraud waste and abuse (FWA) requirements. In the 2021 plan year, the number of FEDVIP dental carriers will increase from 10 to 12. The number of vision carriers will increase from 4 to 5. OPM anticipates no disruption of enrollee’s continuity of services.

Eligible individuals may enroll, cancel, or change their enrollment during the Federal Benefits Open Season this year, November 9 to December 14, 2020.
