GEHA Insurance


Dental insurance claim form

At D Smiles Family Dentistry in Gainesville, Virginia, we’re always working hard to help patients fit the costs of dental care into their budgets. We offer affordable treatment plans, and our knowledgeable team members can help patients to process and file dental insurance claims in order to maximize benefits and minimize out of pocket treatment costs. If you’re a federal employee covered by a GEHA Connection Dental Federal plan, we offer in-network coverage for your dental care. When you call to schedule your first appointment, please tell one of our team members that you have dental insurance benefits through GEHA Connection Dental Federal. Our knowledgeable, experienced team will help you make the most of your benefits from your very first dental appointment.


If you’re covered by a GEHA Connection Dental Federal insurance plan, we are here to help you make the most of your available insurance benefits. These plans work a little differently than other PPO dental insurance policies, but many of the same dentistry services receive coverage. Your GEHA plan splits covered dental treatments into four classes:

  • Class A – specified diagnostic and preventive dental care has no annual deductible. You’ll receive 100% coverage of cost at in-network dental offices and 80% at out of network offices.
  • Class B – advanced preventive care, minor restorative treatments, and oral surgery have a $50 annual deductible. The cost is covered 80% at in-network dental offices and 70% at out of network offices.
  • Class C – endodontics (root canal), periodontics (gum disease), and prosthodontics (crowns, inlays, dentures) have a $100 annual deductible and a 12-month waiting period for coverage. The cost is covered 50% at in-network dental offices and 40% at out of network offices.
  • Class D – orthodontics for covered dependents ages 6 to 17 has a $0 annual deductible and a 24-month waiting period. To cover the cost of orthodontic treatments, patients receive an insurance credit of $50 a month at in-network dental offices and $25 a month at out of network offices.

GEHA dental policies are very detailed, but we don’t expect you to go through every page with a fine-toothed comb. As an in-network dentist, we can do that for you! We are familiar with the covered treatments, and we can help you receive the highest percentage of benefits for all the dental care you need. Most importantly, we’ll review your coverage policies and take all the stress of processing your dental benefit claims off your shoulders.
