Debit Card Available at No Additional Charge

Eligible purchases made using the debit card will be automatically withdrawn from your Flexible Spending Account so you don’t incur out-of-pocket expenses. Flexible Spending debit card purchases for more than pre-set co-pay amounts must be verified by Wage Works to satisfy the IRS.Detailed bills or an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) must be provided upon request by Wage Works for debit card purchases of amounts more than co-pays or your debit card may be cancelled.
