TRICARE, FEDVIP Dental and Vision Rates 2023

TRICARE and FEDVIP Dental and Vision Rates 2023

Dental and vision care rates are subject to change from year to year. This article covers the dental and vision coverage costs for 2023 for the plans listed below. If you are new to TRICARE, some of your options for dental and vision coverage may seem confusing. For example, what is the difference between TRICARE and FEDVIP?

TRICARE is the healthcare insurance option offered to qualifying military members, their families, dependents, retirees, and survivors.

FEDVIP is described as, “a voluntary, enrollee-pay-all program providing dental and vision benefits” to federal employees as well as “certain retired uniformed service members, and active duty family members”. Some may be eligible for TRICARE, others may qualify for FEDVIP. Some may be technically eligible for both.

TRICARE Dental and Vision Plans

TRICARE Vision Care Coverage: The TRICARE official site reminds us, “TRICARE covers annual routine eye exams for active duty family members, regardless of plan.”

For retirees, the nature of your plan will determine the coverage. Routine eye exams are typically covered but you will need to check the terms of your plan to know what specifically applies to you.

Eye exams are typically not covered for TRICARE Select, TRICARE Young Adult Select, or TRICARE For Life.

TRICARE Dental Coverage: Dental coverage is handled differently and is considered a separate plan.

  • Typically, active duty service members receive dental care on base or on-post.
  • In certain remote assignments, this may not be possible and these troops may be authorized to seek care in the private sector, paid for under TRICARE.
  • Active-duty family members are offered options under TRICARE Dental.
  • Guard, Reserve, and Family members may be covered under TRICARE Dental depending on circumstances,
  • Retired military members and their families may qualify for coverage under FEDVIP (see below)
  • Survivors may also be covered under FEDVIP or TRICARE survivor benefit plan options.

FEDVIP Dental and Vision Insurance

FEDVIP, also known as the Federal Employee Dental and Vision Insurance Program, was established by the Federal Employee Dental and Vision Benefits Enhancement Act of 2004 and offers dental and vision benefits typically offered to federal employees, retirees, and their dependents.
