GEHA is honored to serve Military retirees. Military retirees include people who’ve served the United States for over 20 years!
Advocating for our Military Veterans at GEHA is part of our mission and values of caring for each other. Government Employees Health Association (GEHA) originated with federal postal workers passing the hat as a tradition to care for members in the 1930’s in the mail room at union station in Kansas City. 85 years later, GEHA Connection Dental Federal is the largest dental benefit plan for federal employees, and the High Option plan boasts no annual maximum for the plan (excluding orthodontic and implant lifetime maximums). GEHA provides members with access to the largest nationwide network of confirmed providers who serve members enrolled in the FEDVIP program.
GEHA has been a long-time supporter of Veterans Community Project, a nonprofit that addresses mental health and housing issues for everyone who took the oath to serve America, in six U.S. cities. Through grants, volunteerism, and community advocacy/engagement opportunties, GEHA’s relationship with with Veterans Community Project has served the values of both organizations. In 2022, GEHA provided focused funding for oral healthcare services for veterans, understanding that dental pain and related issues attribute to employment absenteeism, social/emotional issues, and more. From emergency aid situations to dentures, this specific program has improved the health and self-esteem of many veterans. In their own words:
