2016 Federal Dental Plans

Download the 2016 MetLife FEDVIP Plan Brochure.

What will your dentist charge you?
In-Network Out-of-Network

Participating dentists charge negotiated fees that are typically 15-45% less than average charges in the same community1.

The negotiated fee even applies to services your plan doesn't cover, including any you've received after you reach your plan's annual maximum.

To find out if your dentist is in the network visit federal.metlife.com and use our "Find a Dentist" tool.

A non-participating dentist sets his or her standard fee, which is typically higher than the negotiated fee.

You will be responsible for the difference between your dentist's charge and the covered percentage of the Reasonable and Customary Fee2 for a given service.
