Atlanta, Ga. (May 8, 2018)InComm, a leading prepaid product and payments technology company, today launched its First Years Wellness Card, a health plan-sponsored program that provides new parents with a restricted-spend prepaid card and special discounts to purchase everyday items they need to keep their babies healthy and happy. Walmart, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Fred's Pharmacy, Dollar General and Family Dollar are among the retailers that currently accept the card.

"Welcoming a new child home is one of the most exciting moments for a family. The First Years Wellness Card makes it easier for families to afford diapers and other basic essentials for their newborn children, that can help get the newborn off on the right foot," said David Vielehr, senior vice president and general manager of InComm Healthcare & Affinity. "With the First Years Wellness Card, health plan providers can incentivize their members to purchase what they need to care for their babies. In the long run, this will help lower healthcare costs for both families and health plan providers."

Through the First Years Wellness Card program, health plans provide new parents with funds that can only be used to purchase items from a catalog of products tailored to infant care. Eligible items include child specific over-the-counter medications, health and wellness products ranging from baby food and formula to thermometers, diapers, strollers, car seats and more. In addition, parents using the card can earn exclusive discounts on select baby care items and other products through IHA's Swipe&Save program.

InComm Healthcare & Affinity helps health plans and affinity groups attract, engage and retain members with innovative consumer benefits and rewards, such as our restricted-spend prepaid cards. For more information, visit www.InCommHealthcareAndAffinity.com.
