Does GEHA Dental Covers Invisalign?
Yes, about estimated 70% of the total cost of your Invisalign treatment will be covered by GEHA Dental if your plan includes orthodontic benefits. By checking the small print in your insurance policy, you can make sure that orthodontic treatments like Invisalign are covered. Watch out for a few provisions in the insurance policy, such as a non-covered expense clause, that could prevent you from receiving Invisalign coverage. You will not be covered for Invisalign if your insurance policy specifies that orthodontics are not covered services or expenses. Additionally, keep an eye out for restrictions and exclusions. There may be a clause limiting orthodontic benefits only for those who are 19 years of age or younger. All insured members who are older than 19 will not be eligible for the orthodontic benefit, including reimbursement for Invisalign treatment, due to this specific limitation.
Does GEHA coverage for Dental Implants?
Implants are limited to $2,500 per person per year in- or out-of-network on High.

Keep in mind that waiting periods, annual maximums, and deductibles are applicable and that they can significantly lower the amount of coverage you can use for teeth implants. Don’t expect to be able to buy insurance for dental implants if your teeth are already missing because not all policies cover pre-existing conditions like missing teeth. Source
