Merchant Category Codes (MCC)

The Flex Card is a limited merchant category card. It is designed to work only at merchants that provide flex-eligible items or services. In addition to the list below, the card will work at any merchant with an Inventory Information Approval System (IIAS) in place. For example, Wal-Mart has a Discount Store MCC of 5310, which is not listed below, but they have an IIAS in place so the card will be accepted there for eligible items. Note that you may be asked to submit documentation for some expenses when the card is used at locations in the list below. Also, please note that while most plans allow Flex Cards to work at IIAS locations and other locations with the MCCs below, some plans are restricted to only IIAS locations, and some have a more limited list of MCCs available. Contact ProBenefits if you have questions about your plan.
