CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid has upgraded its pharmacy and front-end cash registers to make it easier for shoppers to use their Flexible Spending Account debit cards.
The pharmacy retailer is utilizing an inventory information approval system to allow customers to pay for eligible healthcare items with FSA debit cards. Eligible healthcare purchases on receipts are identified with an H to the right of the item’s price. These items are tallied by the cash register and can be paid for by an FSA debit card. The remaining balance for non-eligible items is paid for separately.
The FSA debits cards work similar to other debit cards and allow customers to buy certain health items using funds from a pre-tax accounts.
