This is a very serious question in today’s pharmacy industry. An IRS mandate promotes an electronic process for using flexible spending cards which will save you and your pharmacy customers a lot of time and paperwork. However, if your POS system was not IIAS-compliant by December 31, 2008, and you have not signed up as a 90% merchant, you will be unable to accept and process flexible spending cards as a service to your patients. As the use of the flexible cards increases, patients will go to pharmacies that can process them.
