If you are running a collection agency or business in the medical industry, chances are that the above question crossed your mind. More specifically, you are likely wondering if your company can include HSA (Health Savings Account) collections into your list of services.

There are certain requirements/standard that should be met to be able to accept HSA cards. One of the requirements is that your business should have an eligible merchant category code, which is determined by an HSA card’s particular plan (assigned to your business account, set by the card associations).

Below are are some examples of MCC eligible for HSA card processing:

HSA card processing helps improve your payment collections. It is an effective way to:

  • Eliminate manual payment collections
