InComm Payments, a payments technology company, has announced that Southeastern Grocers has joined the InComm Healthcare over-the-counter network, which provides healthcare plans with supplemental benefit cards that encourage members to purchase healthy foods and other wellness products at participating retailers.
Thanks to this new partnership, customers who use InComm Healthcare’s Dual Network Benefit Card will be able to purchase items with employer or health plan-sponsored funds in all Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery store locations across the Southeast.
“A significant segment of the Medicare Advantage plan members we serve live in the Southeast, so this new partnership will ensure those members can use their benefit cards at grocery stores conveniently located in their communities,” said Brian Parlotto, EVP at InComm Payments.
“We are grateful to SEG for their collaboration as we expand accessibility to healthy foods for these plan members.”
InComm Healthcare’s Dual Network Benefit Card gives Medicare Advantage, Medicaid and other health plans the ability to add more than one supplemental benefit, reward or healthy foods program to a single member card. Cardholders can use these benefit funds to purchase products that are configurated to the health plan’s program requirements, which may include OTC medicines, wellness items and groceries. The cards are loaded with more than $2 billion in supplemental benefit funds annually and are accepted at more than 68,000 retail locations in the OTC Network.
“We are dedicated to providing the best customer experience possible, so we are excited to now accept these benefit cards in our stores,” said Gayle Shields, chief of stores and pharmacies at Southeastern Grocers.
“We look forward to working with InComm Healthcare and helping our customers as they seek convenient ways to support healthy habits.”
