If a merchant's membership is terminated the merchant will no longer be able to have FSA/HRA card transactions approved by plan administrators. If the Member is an IIAS-certified or 90% Rule-registered merchant and the SIGIS membership is 65 days past due, the merchant’s acquirer/merchant processor and payment card networks will be notified immediately.
Membership termination will result in removal of the merchant’s name from the IIAS Merchant List or the 90% Registration list, depending upon what SIGIS process the merchant may have implemented. In addition, the Member will no longer have access to the SIGIS Members Area or the Eligible Products List. SIGIS will notify Visa, MasterCard and card issuers of the merchant’s suspension and the card issuers will decline FSA/HRA Card transactions at that merchant’s locations because the merchant no longer supports IRS requirements for FSA/HRA card acceptance.
