Dominion Dental picked for federal employee insurance program
Alexandria-based Dominion Dental Services – a provider and administrator of dental and vision benefits – has been picked as a regional dental carrier for federal employees.
Dominion will be one of 10 carriers for the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), effective Jan. 1.
The program provides dental benefits available to federal employees, retirees and their families. Dominion will be the only dental HMO plan offered in the FEDVIP program.
Dominion's plan will be available to nearly 900,000 federal employees in the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Employees will choose between Dominion and other plans. Dominion expectes to capture a significant share of the market because it will be the only dental HMO offered.
Dominion, which was incorporated in 1996, offers managed care and indemnity programs, claims adjudication and comprehensive plan administration. Its 500,000 customers are leading health plans, employer groups, municipalities, associations and individuals.
The Dominion group of companies includes Dominion Dental Services Inc., a licensed issuer of dental plans, and Dominion Dental Services USA Inc., a licensed administrator of dental and vision benefits.
Vision plans are underwritten by Avalon Insurance Co.
