GET TO KNOW INCOMM HEALTHCARE & AFFINITY
ATLANTA, GA - InComm, a leading provider of integrated point-of-sale (POS) technology solutions to retailers announced today the 5th anniversary of the OTC network. The OTC Network was launched by Medagate in January 2010 as a point-of-sale platform for Medicare OTC benefits. In 2012, InComm acquired Medagate and formed InComm Healthcare and Affinity, which has become a multidimensional, intelligent payment solution for health plans, retailers and affinity organizations, with more than 38 million live cards in the market today.
"We began as a point-of-sale mechanism for Medicare beneficiaries to access their OTC benefits, which has evolved into an incentive & loyalty platform for health plans, retailers and affinity organizations," said David Vielehr, VP and General Manager of InComm Healthcare and Affinity. "Our relationship with organizations like AARP, CVS, MasterCard and Humana reflect the depth of our new offerings. The retail programs we launch in 2015 will bring our organization to a new level."
Recent highlights of the branded benefit, member-engaging platform include:
InComm Healthcare & Affinity is a wholly-owned subsidiary of InComm Holdings, Inc., created in 2012 through InComm's acquisition of Medagate. The acquisition included Medagate's point-of-sale and defined-spend payments capabilities, the Enhanced Payment Platform and the OTC Network. Combining InComm's distribution and redemption network with Medagate's point-of-sale benefit and reward platform created a powerful new offering: InComm Healthcare & Affinity (IHA).
