Benefit Card User GuidelinesThe CONEXIS Benefit Card may only be used at health care providers who have a health care-related merchant category code (such as doctors, dentists, vision care offices, hospitals, and other medical care providers) or at grocery stores, discount stores and pharmacies who utilize an Inventory Information Approval System (IIAS). You may not use the Benefit Card at any merchant, including pharmacies, that does not have a health care-related merchant category code unless that merchant or pharmacy utilizes an IIAS.Click here to view a list of merchants using an IIAS here.
You may use your card to pay for eligible over-the-counter (OTC) health care items, such as blood pressure monitors, thermometers, bandages, and first aid kits. However, due to new rules effective January 1, 2011, OTC medicines and drugs will no longer be eligible for reimbursement under your health FSA unless prescribed by a doctor. Your benefit card may be used to purchase OTC medicines only if you present the OTC prescription to a pharmacist who then dispenses the medicine in the same manner as a traditional prescription and an Rx number is assigned. If you can't give the pharmacist an OTC prescription before purchasing OTC medicines, you must pay for the items using a form of payment other than your benefit card and then submit the expense for reimbursement along with the doctor's prescription.
