Simple. Flexible. Dual Network.
Our Dual Network Benefit Card™ allows you to mix and match any or all benefits on one medicare flex card (preferred by 95% of members*). Choose plan benefits: over-the-counter products, dental, vision, and hearing, healthy foods, delivered meals and produce, utilities, wellness rewards, and more. Using a flex card is similar to using a prepaid debit card or credit card. Members can shop online, over the phone, via mail order, or in-store with participating retailers available within a mile of every U.S. household (on average). They have allocated funds to use on their flex card benefits and swipe the card at point-of-sale, which recognizes eligible products.
Plus, InComm is HITRUST Certified, so you can be confident our solutions use the latest technology in security, privacy, and compliance to provide a safe environment. HITRUST certification ensures healthcare organizations meet a series of guidelines and IT safeguards to protect member data.
Does Medicare Work On Vision, Hearing, and Dental? Members can use their Dual Network Benefit Card™ at merchants in network or out of network on services and recurring medical expenses. Unlike flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and contribution limits, health plans decide allowance amounts and frequency. Members cannot use their cards to receive cash back.

Supplemental Benefits Explained
As health insurance costs continue to rise, many Medicare Advantage plans (Medicare Parts A, B, D) are choosing to help offset out of pocket expenses by offering supplemental benefit programs. These private insurance companies (HMO, PPO, etc.) offer programs that provide funds to Medicare and Medicaid cardholders for eligible health care items and qualifying services, that would otherwise not be covered by their health plans.
49% of Medicare program participants (beneficiaries) are likely to leave a plan without their preferred benefits. (InComm Healthcare, 2023 Medicare Participants Research) . Plans that go beyond the basic benefits and offer flex cards improve member satisfaction and overall health through increased preventative care. This decreases out of pocket costs, and other medical expenses associated with cost of care.
With OTC, wellness rewards, meal delivery, transportation and more, InComm Healthcare can positively affect 17 out of 33 STAR ratings categories (including breast cancer screenings, diabetes care, annual flu vaccines, and improving or maintaining physical health).
“The OTC benefit is our most highly used supplemental benefit for our members and has a direct impact on retention and new enrollment.”
