Health Care Debit Card

PacifiCare Health Systems has rolled-out a “Flexible Spending Account” service and health care debit card which works off the Cirrus network. PacifiCare’s new service includes a stored-value card that charges health care services directly to an employee’s FSA, much like a bank-issued debit card that charges retail purchases to a checking or savings account. The FSA and debit card services will be available Jan. 1, 2003.
