Debit & Credit Cards

Electronic payment cards are becoming more prevalent and vital in a successful benefit plan offering. Introducing an electronic payment card into a reimbursement account plan empowers employees and gives them an option to inconvenient out-of-pocket expenses.

Which Option Should I Choose?

Each platform has particular strengths that can enhance your benefit plan according to your unique needs as an employer.

The debit card is traditionally the platform of choice for FSAs because the card is tied to Merchant Category Codes (MCC), which restrict the locations that the card can be used and facilitate the auto-adjudication of eligible claims.

On the other hand, because HSA account holders are entitled to access their funds for both medical and non-medical expenses, the non-MCC credit card may be a better choice for that program. In addition, the credit platform allows the HSA account holder to defer the use of HSA funds in order to build up the HSA balance. It is also a source of payment to a provider during the early years of the HSA when account balances may be low.
