Enhanced FEDVIP Benefits for People with Chronic Conditions

If you or anyone in your family has been diagnosed with a chronic illness and periodontitis (gum disease), you are eligible for improved dental benefits through Smile for Health®–Wellness. Getting the proper treatment and maintenance for gum disease will have a positive effect on your overall wellness as scientists continue to uncover connections between certain chronic conditions and gum disease.

Smile for Health®–Wellness is for United Concordia federal dental insurance plan members who have registered with any of the chronic conditions listed below. Simply register in My Dental Benefits to receive these benefits. Members with the following chronic medical conditions are eligible for enhanced benefits at no additional cost:

  • Cerebral Vascular Disease (stroke)
  • Coronary Artery Disease (heart)
  • Diabetes
  • Lupus
  • Oral Cancer
  • Organ Transplant
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis


If you or your United Concordia FEDVIP-covered dependents have one of the eligible chronic conditions, you can sign up as soon as your plan is effective, or whenever the diagnosis is made throughout the plan year (no need to wait until the next plan year). Here’s how:

  • Sign in to My Dental Benefits through our website (UCCIFEDVIP.com)

With Smile for Health®–Wellness you’ll get full coverage for periodontal services, including surgical procedures, to remove the financial obstacles to total oral care.
