The WEX Health Card puts your FSA or HRA money in a debit card format you can use to pay for any of the direct expenses approved and eligible for reimbursement.
The card is loaded with the available funds; you pay your required co‐pay or share and the provider receives the balance of the payment directly.
A few important notes:
- You can only use WEX at businesses set up with a Merchant Category Code classifying them as providers of medical goods/services or those set up with an IIAS Inventory Control System.
- When swiping your WEX card, select Credit instead of Debit.
- You can’t use WEX to get cash intended for healthcare payment
