SIGIS member merchants and manufacturers submit existing or new to market products to SIGIS for review to the Eligible Product List Committee. SIGIS staff and external vendors conduct various data quality checks prior to formal Eligible Product List Committee review. The Eligible Product List Committee is comprised of industry experts including plan administrators, merchants, and other SIGIS members. The Committee reviews the list each month, including the proposed product additions and deletions to ensure adherence with legislative and regulatory requirements including guidance from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Department of Treasury, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Product submissions are due by approximately the 20th of each month for consideration in next month’s list publication. During the submission process, products go through various quality and eligibility checks via automated checks, SIGIS Staff, SIGIS vendors and the Eligible Product List Committee. Products not meeting certain quality checks will not be considered for review. It is important the required form information is detailed and accurate. Product Eligibility is determined and voted upon by full consensus of committee members. Items are added to the list by the 15th of the next month based on eligibility approval. Members may check the submission page to track the status of their submission.
